Use the attached worksheet and the 5 I’s in Chapter 5 to guide you in the writing of a minimum 2-page paper. Please do your research from credible websites. Try to base your answers on facts and research rather than your own opinions. Choose one of the policies listed below and write about each section, based on the specifics of the chosen policy. We would normally be doing this type of analysis on proposed policies before they went into effect, however for this assignment, you will be evaluating current policies that already exist. Do the best you can to answer the question based on how the policy is running today. Your paper will include the following headings:
Here is the list of policies you can choose from:
- Head Start
- Net Neutrality
- GI Bill
- MS’s Third Grade Reading Gate
- Affordable Health Care Act
- Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010
Each of the 5 I sections will be worth 4 points, for a total of 20 points for this assignment. Please include a References page to show where you obtained your information from.
**For an extra 10 points, please continue reading**
An additional 10 points will be added if you choose to include the following two sections:
- Lessons Learned
For the Interview section, please find one individual to interview who has been personally and directly impacted by the policy you select and research. Use the following questions to guide you in your interview, and record their responses exactly as they share them.
a. In what specific ways are you impacted by this policy?
b. Do you consider these impacts negative, positive, or both?
c. How long have you been impacted by this policy?
d. What are the short-term impacts of this policy on you?
e. What are the long-term impacts of this policy on you?
f. How do you see this policy impacting individuals, families, and communities?
g. What do you want others to know about this policy?
In this section, please reflect on your research and your interview. Based on these reflections, write your “take away message”/ lessons learned about public policy’s potential to impact individuals, families, and communities. End with your “take away message”/ lessons learned about your SPECIFIC policy researched
