This activity is an opportunity for you to closely examine a contemporary policy issue facing the state of Texas. Over its history, the Texas government has had many conflicts with the national government as part of the dynamics under a federal system of governance. These disputes have heated up in recent years, and include immigration policy, education policy, environmental policy, social welfare policy and many others issues. Select one of personal interest and objectively outline the nature of the dispute. This will allow you to work towards finding a solution.
Take into consideration constitutional disputes as well as political, economic and cultural differences. Look at the history underlying the dispute, how it is playing out within the governing institutions, and how you think the issue may be resolved, assuming that is possible.
Step 1: Identify the issue and how both the US government and Texas government have been currently addressing it (historical perspective).
Step 2: Gather a minimum of three scholarly research articles and additional news/current events relevant to the topic.
Step 3: Prepare a formal policy report that is a minimum of 1000 words (excluding cited text), which includes a discussion of the following:
- A statement of the current policy
- Reasons for initiating changes
- Policy options to be considered
- Pros and cons of each option
- Recommended course of action
- Reasoning for selecting that course of action
Use three references. The references are not part of the word count.
If you outsource, be very careful to who. I won’t accept any paper that has content which doesn’t correspond to the instructions or..worse..with sentences that make no sense. Thank you 🙂
