From the Back Cover:

Better Policies, Better Schools makes a welcome contribution to the current textbook market in educational policy. The authors weave together literature from numerous sub-fields to provide a unifying four-dimensional framework to approach educational issues.”

Kenneth Wong
Vanderbilt University

This book brings together the latest research on the policy making process and theory, and applies this information to key policy areas. The policy areas examined in the text include: governance, curriculum and standards, accountability, labor relations, finance and school choice. The text examines these policy areas from multiple perspectives or "lenses" that create a coherent, unified framework consisting of normative, structural, constituent, and technical dimensions. The three parts of the book flow from an introduction to the framework of policy analysis to application in policy arenas such as government and finance.

Special Features:

  • The book is divided into 3 distinct parts—Theory, Process, Application—to make information accessible and useful.
  • Policies are examined using 4 frameworks or “policy lenses”—normative, structural, constituent and technical—to enable students to view policy in a range of complexity.
  • Many examples of current policies are examined to show how policies are translated from theory to practice.
  • Each chapter begins with a Policy Vignette to provide examples of policy problems.
  • Chapters end with Chapter Assignments, Activities, Bibliographic lists of classic readings, and References allowing students to integrate chapter material and extend their research and knowledge.
