Analyze an Educational Policy Issue

Analyze an Educational Policy Issue

This assignment will allow you to have flexibility based on your expertise. You chose a policy from the bullets below:

  • ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) implementation
  • Title 1 funding
  • School choice
  • Charter school programs
  • Transparency in school funding
  • Waivers/vouchers for charter/private schools
  • “Supplement, not supplant” issue
  • Graduation rates
  • Federal funding Please analyze a policy issue and discuss how it impacts leadership at one of the three levels of educational leadership: local, state, federal. You will also be asked to analyze the impact through a second level of your choice. For instance, if you are a teacher in a district, you might want to focus the assignment on how a policy impacts local school district leadership. You would then have to also address the policy issue (not as extensively as the local component they have chosen) either through the federal or state lens.

  • Define the problem
