Educational Policy: What is it? This is a short essay I recently wrote on educational policy and schools. I have put it up at libraryreference.org. This is a domain I own that is a DMOZ clone but it also has a collection of articles and book reviews written by my wife and I.
While writing this, I discovered just how hard it is to define educational policy. People mean different things when they say it. And the dictionaries have multiple definitions for the word policy...
From the site:
This paper examines the concept of policy and how it applies to education. This includes a look at the definition of the word policy and how different definitions of the word can be applied. It will also look at educational policy and discuss the different ways that educational policy can be created and applied to serve schools.
