This course is designed for Education majors and minors interested in exploring the sociopolitical landscape of the Denver Public Schools (DPS). Students will live in Denver and intern for 2 weeks in select district schools that are granted autonomy in governance and/or curriculum. Building on the internship experience, students will unpack 21st century education innovations through a lens of social justice. Additionally, students will explore the DPS school choice system and engage with an array of stakeholders including youth, teachers, parents/caregivers, community members, activists, school leaders, and district and state representatives. Students will synthesize their learning through a culminating team project that will involve sharing research-based recommendations with hosting schools and guest speakers. This is a community-based learning (CBL) course. (Not offered 2017-18).
