Education Policy 2nd ed : Bridging the Divide Between Theory and Practice Paperback
What exactly is education policy, why is it important, and how is it implemented in the real world?
Jerome Delaney, a professor of educational administration and former high school principal, answers the big questions about education policy in this powerful and practical primer for students.
Informed by his experience in the public school system, Delaney takes a pragmatic and realistic approach that divides a complicated subject into manageable sub-topics.
He grounds the debate at the classroom level: after all, that's where the effects of high-level policy decisions ultimately play out. Starting from the basics and progressing through to the deeper aspects of education policy, this text provides an excellent introduction to a subject that lies at the foundation of every education system.
This second edition includes a new chapter on issues relating to policy implementation, as well as new discussion questions at the end of each chapter
