What does EDUCATION POLICY mean? EDUCATION POLICY meaning - EDUCATION POLICY definition - EDUCATION POLICY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Education policy are the principles and government policy-making in the educational sphere, as well as the collection of laws and rules that govern the operation of education systems. Education occurs in many forms for many purposes through many institutions. Examples include early childhood education, kindergarten through to 12th grade, two and four year colleges or universities, graduate and professional education, adult education and job training. Therefore, education policy can directly affect the education people engage in at all ages. Examples of areas subject to debate in education policy, specifically from the field of schools, include school size, class size, school choice, school privatization, tracking, teacher education and certification, teacher pay, teaching methods, curricular content, graduation requirements, school infrastructure investment, and the values that schools are expected to uphold and model. Issues in education policy also address problems within higher education. The Pell Institute analyzes the barriers experienced by teachers and students within community colleges and universities. These issues involve undocumented students, sex education, and federal grant aides. Education policy analysis is the scholarly study of education policy. It seeks to answer questions about the purpose of education, the objectives (societal and personal) that it is designed to attain, the methods for attaining them and the tools for measuring their success or failure. Research intended to inform education policy is carried out in a wide variety of institutions and in many academic disciplines. Important researchers are affiliated with departments of psychology, economics, sociology, and human development, in addition to schools and departments of education or public policy. Examples of education policy analysis may be found in such academic journals as Education Policy Analysis Archives and in university policy centers such as the National Education Policy Center housed at the University of Colorado Boulder University of Colorado Boulder.

Is taking up a course in Public Policy all about studying theory and submitting papers? Not quite true... Our Master in Public Policy (MPP) students conduct a Policy Analysis Exercise (PAE) as their capstone project. They work in small groups to study policy issues for client organizations. This could be analysing new issues that the client may not have time or resources to address, or providing fresh perspectives on familiar policy problems. Towards the end of the PAE process, in their second year, student groups will all come together to present their findings at the annual PAE conference. Watch through the videos as the students share with us their joy, pain and fun during their PAE. For more information on our programmes: http://lkyspp.nus.edu.sg/admissions/graduate-programmes/

It begins with a considerations of some of the historical origins of the approaches in the work of Wittgenstein, Austin and Sacks and then examines the range of current ideas about discourses and the schools or styles of analysis to be found. Two in particular are examined here: Discursive Psychology and Foucauldian Discourse Analysis. The rest of this session is then devoted to looking at some of the ideas of discursive psychology developed by Potter, Wetherell and others.

Narrative research refers to any study that analyses narrative materials, which can range from 'naturally occurring' narratives to oral life stories collected for research purposes to written narratives found in the private, public or political realms. One of the main stated reasons for why so many social scientists are interested in studying narratives is because narrative is a basic human way of making sense of the world. Narrative analysis mainly focuses on written or oral texts, but can also be used to analyse photographs, films or even dance performances. Because narrative analysis is inherently interdisciplinary, the field is relatively disparate and there is no one single method of analysis that narrative researchers use.

This session will introduce some of the processes and principles relevant to the analysis of policy documents. This approach, informed by discourse analysis, can be useful both as a means of framing organisational research and in order to interrogate issues in the field. It provides opportunities for exploring what is taken for granted and unspoken. By comparing messages in policy documents with situated practices in local contexts it is possible to build up a rich picture of organisational life and the multiple “realities” it comprises. Applied examples of how documentary analysis has been used in the study of health policy and organisations will be provided. Jon will use examples from his PhD research in a CCG to show the usefulness of this approach.

An excess of abandoned housing currently exists within the City of Muncie. The presence of this abandoned housing creates a number of problems for nearby residents and also for the City as a whole. Policies, intended to reduce the quantity of abandoned housing in the city, have not had as a large an impact as had been hoped. This project team gathered evidence first about the problem and its impacts in the community and then developed a limited number of policy alternatives, estimated their likely impacts, and made policy recommendations for consideration by the community partner.
