ELP 581 - Colloquium #01 Politics & Education

Credits 1
Other / 3 hours per week
Participants in the Colloquium will be exposed to the political dynamics of education. Students and faculty will explore issues involving the intersection of politics and educational policy and practice as well as the impact it may have or has had at the nation (e.g. United States), states (e.g. Massachusetts) and a particular geographical locality (e.g. the South coast region in Massachusetts). Emphasis will be given to the discussion and analysis of the role that the federal and state governments exert through legislative, executive, and judicial action pertaining to education as well as to roles state agencies, school districts, school boards and elected (or appointed) government officials (legislators, mayors, state officials) play in the formation, analysis, and practice of educational policy.
