EFOP 3007 - EDUCATION AND INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Credits: 3.0

This course will explore a wide range of contemporary social issues and trends in educational development from historical as well as comparative perspective. We will read and analyze educational problems and seek to design policy that can have impact in solving the problems. A central focus of this course is social analysis emphasizing educational issues in schools and colleges not only in the United States, but in other global contexts as well. We will critically explore key themes, definitions and approaches to education in individuals' lives across the lifespan, and examine how education helps shape social life in urban/rural areas and other settings from a comparative perspective. We will interrogate theoretical approaches used to understand the problems and current debates in the field of education by all stakeholders including institutions involved with educational development in diverse global settings, such as the United Nations and the World Bank.
