ED 465 - Social Foundations in Urban Education

(3.00 cr.)

Examines the relationship between schools and society. The purposes and functions of urban schooling are examined in economic, sociological, historical, and political context. Students analyze the complexities of teaching and learning in urban schools and examine how urban schools throughout the United States can be structurally and pedagogically transformed. Through an exploration of the scholarly fields (history, philosophy, law, sociology, and anthropology), the social foundations of American education are surveyed. Students explore the dynamic interplay among dominant ideology, political economy, and changes in American public schooling since its inception. Special attention is given to the relationship between democracy and urban schooling. Twenty hours of an introductory field experience is required.

Prerequisite: ED 100  or ED 101 .
