Abstract: This study used Kingdon’s Streams Model to explain why some policy proposals are seriously considered while other solutions are neglected. Interviews with 119 reading policy actors suggest that solutions that recombine familiar elements of previously generated alternatives, indicate support from empirical research, enjoy the support of a high ranking official, redress inequity, or confer benefits to other groups beyond the target were likely to make it to the short list.

Abstract: Over the last decade there has been a growing interest in the role that for-profit private providers of educational services can play in enhancing access to education. There is a vibrant debate between those who see privatisation of educational services as a way to overcome failures by the State to universalise access to education and those who argue that fee paying for profit schools can never reach children in households below the poverty line. This research focuses on how private schools have developed in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa with some of the lowest enrolment rates. It is based on 15 case study schools, a survey of 1000 students at private schools, data from the Ministry of Education and interviews with key informants. The findings suggest that for profit secondary schools complement public provision but are only accessible to richer households. Though some schools are “lower price” none are within reach of households outside the top income quintile. In many of the case study schools, teacher and student turnover was high and facilities and learning materials were inadequate. Private schools can be very profitable because teachers’ salaries are well below those in government schools and investment in infrastructure is limited. On the evidence available, the sector seems unlikely to increase in quality and size without subsidy, and is unlikely to extend its reach to children from poorer households who will continue to be excluded from secondary school. Other solutions to expanding access to secondary school are needed.

Abstract: This paper focuses on the development of three skills underlying mathematical authority: (1) explanation, (2) justification, and (3) assessment. An intervention was designed to help students develop these skills through explicit engagement with assessment in the classroom. Preliminary results from this ongoing study indicate that students had improved meta-level understandings of solutions, which supported greater levels of explanation in their solutions of problems.

Abstract: Solutions journalism, rigorous and fact-driven news stories of credible solutions to societal problems, is gaining a great deal of momentum. To date, research on this journalistic practice is scant and what little research there is has generally focused on text. Given the growing practice of solutions journalism and the dominant role of photographs in the news media, this research used content analysis and semiotic analysis to examine the use of visual reporting in solutions stories.

Abstract: This experiment examined the impact of story-photo congruency regarding solutions journalism. We tested the effects of solution and conflict-oriented news stories when the photo paired with the story was congruent or incongruent with the narrative. Results revealed that a solution-oriented story with a congruent photo made readers feel the most positive, but surprisingly readers were most interested in the story and reported the strongest behavioral intentions when the story was paired with a neutral photo.
