Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Mar 25, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Leslie Lavery, Political Science, will present “Lessons Learned: Parent Policy Feedback and No Child Left Behind.”  A growing body of work in political science suggests that policies teach citizens important political lessons about their place in politics and role in our political system. To date research has focused on highly visible policies with direct material influence on a specified target population. I propose an amendment to existing theory that applies across policy type and population by explicitly taking into account individual policy exposure and knowledge. This talk will focus on public school parents' school related and political attitudes in response to No Child Left Behind - a highly visible yet complicated policy with varying consequences for schools of different designation.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
