EDUC 2088 - URBAN EDUCATION REFORM
The course is designed to provide both a background understanding of urban education, as well as expose students to particular urban education reforms. Students will examine selected historic and contemporary reform efforts in education, in particular studying the theories of change, implementation challenges and critiques associated with these different reforms as they apply to urban districts and schools. We will look at the theoretical underpinnings of particular reforms, as well as why education policies have succeeded or failed, and the consequences of these outcomes.
