Abstract:The result of the study verified that this policymaking process was quite contentious. Analysis, using the three policymaking frameworks, provided insight into the volatile nature of this process and possible explanations of why the implementation delays took place. Analysis revealed the struggle between the community process of policymaking (Peters, 1999; Stone, 1997) and the systems policymaking process (Easton, 1965). Further, through delay of the policy implementation, the teachers' unions were able to overcome what they considered the "punitive" teacher accountability aspects of HB452 that were endorsed by the business community. In the future, it seems that the community framework may be more effective in moving education reform forward in Illinois.
