Student Surveys of Policy Issues Related to Children.
This project is a prototype study which investigates the interaction of graduate students from different disciplinary backgrounds and different educational institutions in exploring social and public policy issues related to children. The results and evaluation of the research program are presented in this document. Divided into three teams, the students examined three social issues in relation to child development: (1) legal problems of providing medical care to minors; (2) treatment of children in state mental health facilities; and (3) advocacy and lobbying for children. Three reports from these student teams follow the explanation of the study. The report concludes that small and delimited research projects can profitably and successfully be completed by small teams of graduate students provided that the scope of the research is carefully delineated and established in advance, the groups are small and the tasks well structured, and the projects are closely supervised by staff.
