EDU 223 FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION
An introduction for students to the notion of schools as sites of political struggle. Students examine this problematic through the historical, sociological, political, and economic lenses as well as contemporary theories of education: liberal/progressive, traditional/conservative, and revolutionary/critical theories. Students apply these theories to their examinations of contemporary public schools and classrooms. Students are required to complete a minimum 20-hour in-school practicum as part of this course.
Open to first-year students and sophomores; and to juniors and seniors enrolled in an education certificate program.
Enrollment limited to 25 students per section.
