Policy Approaches to Risk: "Risk" in Past and Present Federal Legislative Initiatives.
Carnochan, Sibyll; Vasudeva, Ash
This paper examines the way changing notions of "risk" have shaped federal educational policy. Section 1 of the paper presents a broad history of federal K-12 legislation and suggests that these programs have been motivated by different conceptions of "risk." Section 2 offers a portrait of the 1994 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as a window into how current conceptions of "risk," as well as other factors, affect federal policy.
