Policymaking in American Public Education, a Framework for Analysis.
Thompson, John Thomas
This book is intended to help readers understand the forces, processes, and conditions that interact in shaping the direction of public education and to acquaint them with several conceptual models that might assist in explaining educational policy-making. The author attempts to develop a conceptual framework that can be used to visually explain the parties, processes, and interactions in the policy process. An Eastonian model is used to examine the impact and interrelationships of local, state, and federal government in the realm of educational policy. In each section, a visual model shows the interrelationships of the various subsystems and how they affect policy formation. The models in each succeeding section relate back to earlier sections, so that readers may sense the dynamics and interrelationships of all the factors involved in educational policy-making.
