in the united states a public policy is an agreed upon way that our federal, state, or local government fulfills its responsibilities, such as protecting the rights of individuals and promoting the welfare of all the people. some public policies are written into laws by legislatures. other policies are contained in rules and regulations created by executive branches of government, the branches responsible for carrying out and enforcing laws.
the following are examples of public policies and the governmental agencies responsible for carrying them out.
school districts are responsible for making policies regarding student behavior and discipline. teachers and school administrators enforce these policies. state legislatures are responsible for making laws that place speed limits on drivers. police officers enforce these laws. city governments often adopt policies that prohibit people from operating liquor stores near public schools. city inspectors and zoning departments enforce these policies.
when people become aware of problems in their communities, they often want government to develop and carry out policies to deal with those problems. these may be problems for which there are
existing policies or laws that do not work well,
existing policies or laws that are not being enforced,
no policies or laws.
as a citizen of the united states you have a right to say what you think government should do about problems in your community. you also have a right to say what you think about problems in your state, the nation, and about international problems. you have the right to try to influence the decisions people in your government make about all of those problems.
to be able to participate effectively, however, citizens need to know which levels of government and which governmental agencies are responsible for changing, enforcing, or developing a specific public policy. for example, state legislatures may direct agencies to enact policies resulting from federal legislation. or, local governments may create policies in order to carry out responsibilities assigned to them through laws enacted at the state or federal level. additionally, as part of the process of developing and implementing policy, governmental agencies must determine if the new policy conflicts with existing legislation or policy.
this project is intended to you learn how to express your opinions, how to decide which level of government and which agency is most appropriate for dealing with the problem you identify, and how to influence policy decisions at that level of government. it calls for you to work cooperatively with others in your class and, with the of your teacher and adult volunteers, to accomplish the following tas
Respect and obey federal, state, and local laws. Respect the rights, beliefs, and opinions of others. Participate in your local community. Pay income and other taxes honestly, and on time, to federal, state, and local authorities.

The rights and responsibilities of being a citizen in the united states
they have changed over time and will change over time
What does a being a good citizen entail, what are its properties? Being a responsible citizen of the United States is something that entails many decisions and actions. Being a good citizen of the United States might include calling law enforcement or just picking up litter on the side of the road.
Imagine that you are walking through your neighborhood and you witness a robbery. The robbery occurs at someones house that you don't know, you contemplate whether to call the police or to just let it go, the thoughts that go through your mind could be: you don't know that person,its none its none of your business, you could get targeted after calling, so you decide not to call. Next week its your house broken into and its the same man who broke into your neighbors house last week. Now rewind back to that moment when you could have called the police. Was choosing not to call being a good citizen of your neighborhood? More importantly was it being a good citizen of the U.S? Because you were scared, cautious, et cetera, you neglected your duty to report a crime. You allowed a robber to walk free from a crime and endanger the lives of the U.S. citizens all around you. Secondly, voting. As a voter it is every citizens right to elect a representative that will support their country. If you do not vote your are lessening the odds that a good representative will come to office. If a good representative is not elected into office then there are chances the countries economy will go down, experience shortages, et cetera. (Now mind you must be at least 18 to vote.) Voting is an essential right that must not ignored and pushed to the side or all else might fall.
In conclusion, citizens must make careful decisions in order to be a responsible citizen of the United States. This includes calling the law enforcement for dangers to our community and the the area around us, and exercising your right to vote for good and proper leadership.
You can say something about paying taxes, as that help the government build and improve infrastructure. (roads, buildings, etc)
You can also say something about voting as that tells the government to know what they need to improve on, and what the people want. (not just for candidates)
You can write the rest but I will give you a thesis to help you!
A good citizen can be characterized as having a responsibility to respect other americans and they can also participate in national activities that better the environment.
Hope you can write it now!
