EDU 6555 - Critical & Cultural Perspectives in Education

Credit(s): 3

In this course, participants use critical and cultural theory and research to examine education as a sociocultural endeavor. Participants learn to analyze the means by which distinct cultural values interact with historical trends, social norms and global forces to shape the aims of schooling, the perceptions of policymakers, the role of educators, the function of families and support agencies and the expectations for youth. Attention is drawn to civic and governmental processes for moving education toward more equitable and inclusive ends. Participants conduct a collaborative fieldwork project with a social service agency using family-centered practice toward the goal of advocating for the democratic aspirations of education. 20 hours of fieldwork. Spring semesters
