EDUC 260 - Critical Issues in Urban Education

This course explores the peril and promise of urban public education in challenging times. Critical issues to be explored range from poverty and growing economic inequality, to challenges faced by recent immigrants and historically oppressed populations, to religious and political intolerance, to bullying and school violence, to school bureaucracy, administration and governance, to teacher unions and professional ethics, to urban education reform initiatives promoted by corporations, think tanks and foundations in contrast to those emerging in response to teacher/parent/student/community activism. Every spring. (4 Credits)
