SOC320 Week 2 Journal Reflections on Education Policy
Help me study for my Sociology class. Im stuck and dont understand.
For your journal entry, watch Changing Education Paradigms (Links to an external site.), and then explore aspects of your personal experience and/or beliefs regarding significant public policies and what you have learned in this course. As you reflect this week, please discuss the following:
a. What is your reaction to the concepts and perspective presented in the video?
b. What are the current major issues relating to education?
c. Do you think every individual has the right to the same kind of education (i.e., academic versus vocational)? Explain why or why not.
d. In your informed opinion, who should be responsible for the provision of education: the federal or local government, or individual citizens? Explain why.
e. In your opinion, what needs to be done currently to improve our educational system?
f. Discuss one policy that you feel has been instrumental in making positive changes in the provision of education either nationally or locally. Be sure to explain your position in detail.
The purpose of the journal activity is to allow you to thoroughly reflect upon what you have learned during this course, particularly this week, and to provide you with an opportunity to relate this what you have learned this week to your own experiences. The reflective journal is not a formal written assignment. However, you are expected to adhere to conventional rules of grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation while focusing on clearly conveying your thoughts.
Your reflective journal should be at least 300 words in length. Support your points with scholarly references, appropriate citations, and full references page at the conclusion of your journal. Cite your sources in APA format.
