EDL 730 - Current Issues in Educational Policy

This course examines the ways in which educational policies influence the organization of school districts and schools and content of teaching and learning in all elementary and secondary schools. The course focuses on the social and educational thought about the goals, purposes, and methods of schooling as related to federal, state, and local policy initiatives, and it explores how politics, social conditions, educational philosophies, and contemporary research frame these initiatives. Students will analyze policies and their implementation, as well as the theories about education, teaching, learning, and human behavior that underlie different policy paradigms.
