Toward the Improvement of Public Policymaking: A Policy Sciences Developmental Construct.
Kozakewich, E. J.; And Others
Meta-megapolicy, a concept mix of the policy sciences discipline, is viewed as central to attempts at improving public policy-making. Rooted in the prevailing societal values, public policies are envisioned as the result of a policy-making process in which megapolicy is utilized to determine the needed changes in policy, and metapolicy is utilized to sharpen the focus of megapolicy. A conceptual framework, in the form of a five dimensional developmental construct, is presented that may enhance the policy-making process in such public sectors as education. The five dimensions of the construct allow each policy-maker to choose the specifics within each dimension that are pertinent to the policy issue of the policy-maker's choosing. Implications for policy-making and for the policy sciences are examined. (Author)
