Kingdon: Agendas, Alternatives, and Public Policies

 Agenda building is often the first step in your policy practice tasks. Building a solid agenda may well determine the success of the development of a policy proposal and may also determine your success in placing an issue in front of a decision maker. For this Assignment, you evaluate the accuracy of the Kingdon model of policymaking. To prepare: Review Chapter 6 in your text, paying special attention to the section entitled “Three Challenges in Agenda Building.” Submit a 2-page paper evaluating the accuracy of the Kingdon model in policymaking. Address the following: *Discuss the three streams Kingdon has identified where problems originate, and provide your opinion on which one most accurately reflects how and why policies come about. *Discuss the assertion that certain kinds of issues receive preferential treatment in problem solution and political streams. *Discuss tactics that policy practitioners use within each of the three streams to increase the odds that a specific issue will be placed on decision agendas. **Make sure that your assertions are supported by appropriate research and reputable resources.
