ELP 675 - Democracy and Education: Lessons from the Practice

Credits 3
Seminar / 3 hours per week
Examination of successful experiences from real schools, teachers and leaders. By using the real field as a testimony, students will analyze and debate how a winning school and leadership is profoundly connected, not only with the curriculum per se - based on the belief that knowledge comes to life for students and teachers only when it is connected to something that is serious, but also in ways of finding practical avenues to increase the meaningful participation of everyone involved in the educational experience, including parents, local residents, and especially students themselves, making schools a democratic way of living.
