YOU DO NOT NEED DO THIS, THIS IS THE EP-OD DRAFT THAT WE DID, JUST A IDEA TO GIVE YOU WHAT ARE U WORKING ON,
What is the main obstacle to improving educational equality in the U.S.?
Write an Op-Ed that addresses this question building on what you have learnt in the course so far. Follow the instructions below carefully.
Your Op-Ed should include 4 paragraphs: a short introductory paragraph that motivates readers to continue reading (i.e., it has a “hook”), two main paragraphs that follow the instructions below, and a short conclusion.
Your Op-Ed should be based on what we have learnt in this course, including relevant readings and lectures. However, you are writing an Op-Ed, so it should not have footnotes or a bibliography at the end. When referencing a reading, you should cite it within the main text using a style that is appropriate for an Op-Ed (e.g., “a study conducted by Jane Doe and colleagues…”, “research conducted by John Doe and other political scientists…”, etc.).
The total word count for this assignment cannot exceed 500 words. Assignments that exceed 500 words will be penalized by a half-letter grade reduction (A to A-, A- to B+, etc.) every 10 extra words.
