Week 2 - Discussion 1 Prescriptive Approaches Read the rational planning and prescriptive approach case presented in Comparative Approaches to Program Planning. How did political influence or context impact this case? How would you have approached this case from a planning perspective? Respond to a minimum of two of your classmates by Day 7. Reply to this person Lucy Cooper Yesterday Feb 24 at 6:10pm Manage Discussion Entry The political impact of the rational planning and prescriptive approach changed by the influence of the mayor, who used his powers to enhance the need of street kids by using sheltering as a to rescue the children from the streets. As rational planning always creates an issue, the Street Education Program found a problem in getting an accurate estimate of the number of children living on the street. Maintaining research and motivation for change or address micro (small things or issues) and macro (big ideas) issues is best for future accomplishments (Gomez and Ryan, 2016). Focusing on the need for policies and the qualitative methodology research of counting the homeless children in the area where they receive service will be a start (Doucet, 2018). However, even that can prove as individuals with homes, but no food tends these programs. Though ‘indirect estimate, single-contact censuses, and captured and recaptured studies used, there are technical inadequacies’ (Institute of Medicine, 1988).

Then, apply the knowledge gained from the Practical Research text by explaining the specific qualitative research design that was selected for this study. Explain why the researchers might have selected this design. Include the design, purpose, focus, method of data collection, method of data analysis from Practical research: Planning and design. Reply to this person Lucy Cooper Yesterday Feb 24 at 6:08pm Manage Discussion Entry A chosen qualitative research (Used to solve a group behavior on specific topics.) for adolescents with learning disabilities because it does not have an idea of where to start or what to expect at the beginning of the research (Leedy and Ormrod, 2016, pg. 371); used to define the problem or develop an approach to the problem. Qualitative research allows the researcher to dig deeper into the question(s), to create new ideas or views, and thoughts. Unstructured collective data are from observing body language, gestures, and postures that will give insight into problems and solutions to adolescents learning disabilities (Aldridge, Jeffery, Taylor, and Barringer, 2017). According to Baxter and Jack (2008), the methodology used to study difficult situations. References: Aldridge, P. R., Jeffrey, P., Taylor, G., & Barringer-Brown, C. (2017).

Korie Cable Yesterday Feb 25 at 4:37pm Manage Discussion Entry Qualitative research is research yielding information that cannot be easily reduced to numbers; typically involves an in-depth examination of a complex phenomenon (Leedy and Ormord,2016). When little information exists on a topic, when variables are unknown, when a relevant theory base is inadequate or missing, a qualitative study can help define what is important- that is, what needs to be studied (Leedy and Ormond, 2016). The article used data collection as a qualitative way of research. I also saw that they also used data analysis as well. With the two of those being used they then used the constant comparative method which is when a researcher goes back and forth between data collection and data analysis. When reading this article I found that the writer left some questions unanswered and that to me seems like they were having trouble identifying what they were trying to investigate.

Discussion One

In assessing the issues that were present in the case, politics played a vital role in the
manner that different problems were approached. In specific, the mayor was pivotal in the
process of making sure everything went according to plan. For example, he used his powers to
ensure that the needs of street kids were taken care of. Notably, the mayor used sheltering as a
means of rescuing kids who were living in the street. Additionally, the Street Educational
Program had issues in getting an accurate number of the kids who were living in the streets. As
well, there were problems with maintaining the motivation and keeping the research efforts
operational. Such issues are normally associated with rational planning. Fortunately, the
governor used his political influence to deal with the problems and ensure that the program went
on without a hitch (Pinto, 2000).
From a planning perspective, I would have approached this case in a manner that was
different from the way it was handled. In particul...
