EDUCATION

EDU-565
Gender and Cultural Diversity in School (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate

Combining both historical perspective and contemporary knowledge and skills, this course investigates the impact of bias in school. From the earliest colonial schools to contemporary classrooms, bias, selectivity, and access have been pervasive educational barriers. The course discusses both past issues and current challenges, bridging disparate groups and interests, and searching for commonalities and differences among racial, gender, class, ability, and ethnic concerns. Students undertake a social science investigation to add to the understanding of educational equity. Usually offered every fall.
