evaluating programs that already exist and proving they work helps keep those programs going and gets them more funding/secures their funding



i guess...but that indicates a flaw in the public policy system, imo. which is also obvious lol.   but, of course, shyt won't change until multiple studies are performed to prove that over and over again as well...


well the system is flawed

lol at the last part

maybe my friend and I should get together and do some consulting and lobbying

I can do the research and she can be a lobbyist (she just started a new job working for an urban school district in their education department and she worked with lobbyists at her previous job)

as it relates to this particular topic...there has been waaaay more than 1 study. but i get it...

personally, i won't be needing a study (on this) until there is one that proves something opposite of historical reality...

depends on who wants to conduct a study and why

maybe a study is done for someone's dissertation, maybe a professor is interested in urban communities and their life work is studying the achievement gap between blacks and whites, maybe other studies have shown there is a problem, the government responded with a program (like Early Head Start) and now the program needs to be evaluated

studies are carried out at various times and by different people

I wouldn't say they are only done say every blank amount of years just to see where things are now

Big smile  Thanks!  I've been drowning in all of my old psych textbooks as I get ready for grad school. Cry  I was reading The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat during my vacation as some "light reading". LOL
