EDU 502 - Foundations in Educational Research: Perspectives in Social Justice


Prerequisites: None
This course provides an overview of the historical, sociological, psychological, political and economic influences on education in America. Students will acquire knowledge and gain insights into how societal and educational structures, policies, and practices affect student learning and outcomes. The course is designed to offer students a theoretical and conceptual grounding in the historical, sociopolitical and philosophical underpinnings of education for diverse populations in the United States. Students will explore such matters as equality, equity, diversity and social identity, and how these concepts are an integral part of schooling in a democratic society. This interdisciplinary approach allows students to reflect upon education in a way that understands that school settings are not neutral, but play a dominant role in the cultural and structural features of society, in particularly as it relates to power structures within our society.
