EDT 608 Historical Perspectives in Education 3 sem. hrs.
Teachers need to know how the American system of education has evolved in order to make sense of where it is now. An understanding of the forces that have shaped educational policy and practice - religion, politics, technology, economics, philosophy, media - gives educators a broad perspective on schooling. The values of a democratic political community based on the ideals of liberty, equality, justice, and obligation for the public good are contrasted with the realities of racism, sexism, materialism, class bias, and bureaucratic effects. Offered every fall.
