This course examines how gender, race, and the policy process impact U.S. public schooling. The course will provide a brief historical overview of public schooling in the U.S. It will also examine key critical frameworks used in education policy. In addition, this course will give an overview of the policy process. An important assumption of this course is that examining solutions is equally important as understanding the problem. For this reason, students will be introduced to Positive Psychology, as a possible lens to study optimistic outcomes.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and have a basic understanding of key critical frameworks most frequently used in education policy
- Understand research methods (including measures, interventions, and research paradigms) used in education policy research
- Identify contemporary educational challenges that could potentially be considered using a critical lens in research
- To articulate multiple perspectives on a specified education policy issue. Consider how the policy process and alternative lens could aid researchers in finding solutions
