Comparative Higher Education Politics Policy Diffusion in U.S. Higher Education

Comparative Higher Education Politics : Policy Diffusion in U.S. Higher Education [Policy ideas are seldom original; they are often borrowed from other jurisdictions and sometimes adapted to the local context. This chapter reviews research on policy diffusion within the U.S. higher education context, with a focus on the diffusion of higher education policies across states. In addition to reviewing existing literature on U.S. higher education policy diffusion, we present findings from a study that examines newspaper language related to state-level performance-based funding policies for higher education. We focus on two states that considered performance-based funding but were among the few states that did not implement this higher education funding approach. By examining these two states, we are able to explore reasons for non-implementation and shed light on the phenomenon of resistance to policy diffusion.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[Policy ideas are seldom original; they are often borrowed from other jurisdictions and sometimes adapted to the local context. This chapter reviews research on policy diffusion within the U.S. higher education context, with a focus on the diffusion of higher education policies across states. In addition to reviewing existing literature on U.S. higher education policy diffusion, we present findings from a study that examines newspaper language related to state-level performance-based funding policies for higher education. We focus on two states that considered performance-based funding but were among the few states that did not implement this higher education funding approach. By examining these two states, we are able to explore reasons for non-implementation and shed light on the phenomenon of resistance to policy diffusion.]
