Health Policy Analysis | Policy Paper
In at least two pages (double spaced, 11-12 point san serif font) but not more than three pages, introduce the policy being analyzed and describe the health policy that is being proposed. The paper must be supported by at least three quality references. (This is an adjustment to the previous description that references needed to be scholarly.)
The bill SB 384 specially mentions that the state department of education and the Kansas Department for children and families would prepare an annual report card on options for education for those who are in foster care system is the assignment I chose for this paper.
See the rubric. The paper must have at least three scholarly sources that are cited within the paper and on a bibliography page using APA style. The policy must be linked and included as an additional source.
Introduction: Include a brief summary of the bill/policy and where it was introduced/adopted. Provide a thesis statement at the end of the introduction that gives a roadmap about what the paper will cover.
Explain the policy solution
What is being proposed? What are the planned policy goals?
How have similar issues been resolved through policy decisions in other places or organizations? (If this is available. You might not have comparative data.)
Review whether the planned policy goals, strategies and actions fit the situation. Consider whether they:
Are timed well (i.e., Is this a good time to raise the issue?)
Use available resources and allies (i.e., Does it take advantage of the group’s strengths? Engage its allies? Deter opponents?)
Are likely to work (i.e., Does it correct the original problem or inequality?)
3, Briefly conclude
