Discussion Question

  

how you would narrow a topic from each of the three issues by identifying a problem for each issue that can be researched. Identify one piece of key information you discovered in a scholarly resource about each problem.  

identify three education-related issues. To be a change agent in the field of education, you have a responsibility to stay aware of current issues and to know how those issues positively and negatively impact key stakeholders.

For this Discussion, you will narrow the scope of each education-related issue you identified in order to formulate problems that merit further investigation. What are some of the problems—whose resolution might be informed by applying knowledge from existing research or conducting a new research study—associated with each of the issues? Why is it important to investigate one or more of these problems? Identifying issues and problems early in your advanced graduate degree program allows you more time to build on your knowledge base related to them. Further, you will be prepared to analyze and evaluate scholarly inquiry with a critical eye.  These questions are not inclusive of all that needs consideration when contemplating a research study, but they give you an idea of what needs to be considered when you take an educational issue and extract problems for possible investigation.
