EDU560: PUBLIC POLICY AND POLITICAL INFLUENCES IN EDUCATION

I LIVE IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

Dear Legislator Letter

Politics have a significant impact on the way students receive an education. Whether at the K–12 or Higher Education levels, political decisions require that changes in local educational policies are implemented. This is especially evident with events that have a significant impact on the political landscape, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

For this activity, you are going to write a letter to your state’s senator, expressing your reflections in light of the current educational landscape. Depending on your path, your letter will focus on K–12 or Higher Education.

Write a 2-page letter in which you:

1. Evaluate the effectiveness of one educational policy that was implemented during the pandemic for students in your locality, including the instructional delivery and the impact on students. In the letter, be sure to summarize the policy.

2. Assess whether the policy has had a positive or negative impact on education today.

3. Recommend one revision to the policy you addressed to the legislator, including your rationale.

4. Use three sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the
