Final Paper: Letter to the Principal

As educators, community members, and/or parents we all play a role in disrupting problematic school practices. In

this final assignment you will identify one problematic practice in education and, (1) describe the problem (historical context), (2) explain why it is harmful to students, and (3) offer solutions. The assignment will be written in the form of a letter to a school principal or school board. You must use at least 3 reputable sources, such as, academic articles, books, news articles, and/or data, to support your argument. I provide a few examples of topics you may choose (see below) but you may choose any topic that interests you. The strongest letters focus on one specific issue/problem. If you have questions about your topic you can email me or we can discuss. Please refer to the rubric to earn full points for the assignment. To see a sample of a well-written letter you will find one in Canvas under “course documents.”
