Semester Hours:3Fall, Spring
This course examines the school as an institution shaped by political, professional, economic, and social units. We examine these units as both distinct and intersecting elements that contribute to the social, philosophical, and historical lens. Hypotheses and analytical tools from a variety of the social sciences are employed as means of exposing and interpreting central features of the American public educational system.
Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes: May be applied toward liberal arts credit.
