EDL 700 - History of Public Schooling in the US and Internationally


This course is designed to provide both aspiring and practicing PreK-12 school leaders in the US and other countries with a social historical examination of the development of public schooling. From this review, students will discern the dynamic connection between the ever-changing needs of the national and local society with consequent demands on its schools. The course draws attention to the power dynamic between decision makers and the intended target of those decisions. Class sessions will provide opportunities for discussion and reflection on the lessons of history for contemporary school leaders.
