EDC 525 - Social Context in American Schooling

Focuses on the role of schools in reproducing and reinforcing prevailing social, political and economic relationships and inequalities. The course examines the origins of educational change movements, the organizational culture of public and private education, and the impact of schooling on the sub-cultures of American society. Students will examine competing interpretations of the impact of race, class, and gender on education and the issues of continuity and change in policy and practice. It will include exploration of social science concepts for the analysis of educational, cultural, and social institutions, organizations, and processes of different peoples of the world. This course is interdisciplinary, drawing upon social history, anthropology, and sociology.
