EDA 76200 Educational Policy, Politics, and Social Justice

In this course, doctoral students pursue an advanced and in-depth exploration of historical and present-day educational policies. They examine policy at the federal, state, and local levels and consider how these policies influence educational systems. Students also explore various constructions of social justice and how these align with past and present-day education reform efforts. Students analyze critical social theory, social constructions of identity, and networks of power to develop new understandings of educational advocacy and consider how education can help create more fair and just societies.
