This course is devoted to the critical examination of educational theory, practice, and policy within and across socioeconomic, cultural, and linguistic groups. We will analyze and discuss issues related to educational access and opportunity, curricula, pedagogical methods, and learning outcomes. In discovering the difference between ‘equal education’ and ‘equitable education’, we will identify the unique needs of students, structural challenges facing educators, and possible solutions to the inequities of early education, school resources, tracking, and teacher quality, among other variables. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Social Inequality requirement. (Not offered 2019-20).
