Zero Tolerance Policy Analysis
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the zero-tolerance policy through a policy analysis framework. In this paper, I will discuss the social problem history, objective, effects and implication of the zero-tolerance policy and how the intended and unintended effects on African American students. Ultimately, this analysis encourages school administrators to understand the policy and learn to adequately apply them without relinquishing their ethical responsibility to education and the well-being of students.
