It is the analysis of the policies implications.
Policy == political — in what ways:
- interests of the shareholders
- agenda attached
Different levels of analysis
- Local (evaluate a particular policy and its effect on individuals)
Policy has a legitimate authority to shape practices
Policy and practice
Example: Some schools have policies about relationships between faculty/staff and student
We can think of policies in these multiple levels — most appropriate
- policy is operating at
- what we want to pay attention to
analysis == intended and unintended effects
- How do policies shape local practices? How does it shape external policies?
- How does it shape the whole?
- We have to understand it within its context — and how the other policies shape it within the enterprise (i.e. if we talk about desegregating schools we have to talk about re-regulating)
- Rhoads, Saenz, Carducci — Affirmative Action as a Social Movement
- Pasquaix — politics of education and the policy making process — Milner’s framework of seen/unseen (Ed Researcher 2007) comes from a research method — what are the potential consequences of this policy that we know of — what we can and cannot see — how do we account for the policies that are unforeseen
- Annon — intersections of multiple policies
