Comparative Higher Education Politics Policy Framing in Higher Education in the United States

Comparative Higher Education Politics : Policy Framing in Higher Education in the United States [This chapter situates policy framing in the context of higher education in the United States. First, the chapter overviews framing and frames as concepts of import to postsecondary policy making. Next, the chapter describes who in the U.S. engages in framing including interest groups, IPPOs, policy elites, the media, and social movements. To illuminate the role of framing and frames in U.S. postsecondary policy, and the diverse policy actors who frame, this chapter explores how the Truman Administration framed higher education’s purposes as compared with the Bush and Obama Administrations. In doing so, the chapter shows how the rise of neoliberal ideology as a governing rationality within the institutional environment shifted how policymakers frame higher education policy problems and solutions. The chapter also explores how framing and frames can both encourage change in the institutional environment while embedding new institutional norms and paths into policy and institutional practice. The chapter concludes by describing why framing matters in U.S. postsecondary policy while surfacing the contested nature of framing as a concept and theory.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter situates policy framing in the context of higher education in the United States. First, the chapter overviews framing and frames as concepts of import to postsecondary policy making. Next, the chapter describes who in the U.S. engages in framing including interest groups, IPPOs, policy elites, the media, and social movements. To illuminate the role of framing and frames in U.S. postsecondary policy, and the diverse policy actors who frame, this chapter explores how the Truman Administration framed higher education’s purposes as compared with the Bush and Obama Administrations. In doing so, the chapter shows how the rise of neoliberal ideology as a governing rationality within the institutional environment shifted how policymakers frame higher education policy problems and solutions. The chapter also explores how framing and frames can both encourage change in the institutional environment while embedding new institutional norms and paths into policy and institutional practice. The chapter concludes by describing why framing matters in U.S. postsecondary policy while surfacing the contested nature of framing as a concept and theory.]
