Partnerships do not always address problems that, when fixed, make for good nightly news stories. One reason why is that partnerships often focus on implementation of initiatives, and most people and journalists think of implementation something simple and straightforward, certainly not newsworthy.
A recent report of the FrameWorks Institute (http://www.frameworksinstitute.org/) called Just Do It: Communicating Implementation Science and Practice note that many people believe that implementation is a matter of just doing what works. Below is a brief outline of an argument related to how to counter that belief, appealing to values of innovation and ingenuity that the Frameworks Institute argues can help the public appreciate the importance of tackling problems of implementation.
Our argument outline focuses on adapting the argument to address why the work of partnerships in improving implementation is important for education. Your argument will need to be more specific, tailored to how your partnership is supporting implementation of a particular program or initiative.
