EDPA 5645 Craft of Policy Analysis
Intended for students interested in learning about the policy analysis process-- identifying a public problem, researching solutions to the problem, weighing costs and benefits of various alternatives, and developing policy recommendations aimed at addressing the public problem. The particular emphasis in this course is on how policy analysts think and what they do. What kinds of problems receive government attention -- how and why? The course is organized to help students understand and become more informed about the nature of education policy in the United states at the federal, state, and district levels.
