Research decision-making models in education.

Use the Library to research decision-making models in education. Complete the following:

  • Investigate how different models include underlying assumptions found in different schools of philosophy and educational philosophy.
  • Select 3 of the educational decision-making models from the following list and describe how each model is used.
  • Include in your description how the models guide educators and what underlying philosophical assumptions are paramount to each model.
  • Discuss at least 1 school of philosophy and one educational philosophy for each decision-making model.
  • Contrast the 3 models’ design, beliefs, and underlying suppositions.
  • Include in your descriptions likely educational settings where each model could be used. You should discuss at least 1 situation for each of the 3 models. Indicate any educational setting(s) where a particular model would not be the best choice and explain why.

Discuss your findings in a 4–6-page paper. Reference your textbook and other information found in the Library and on the Internet. Your paper should include a cover page, abstract, introduction, and conclusion.
