Read Chapter 9 of The Policy Game: Understanding U.S. Policy Making, and watch Changing Education Paradigms (or read the transcript). Then, write a paper on the problem of education in the United States. Share your reactions to the concepts and perspective presented in the video. In your paper, address the following:
- Does every individual have the right of access to education? Why or why not?
- Do you think every individual has the right to the same kind of education (i.e., academic versus vocational)? Explain why.
- Who should be responsible for the provision of education, the federal or local government? Explain why.
- In your opinion, what needs to be done currently to improve our educational system?
Also, discuss one policy that you feel has been instrumental in making positive changes in the provision of education either nationally or locally and explain your position.
Your paper must be three to four pages in length.
