EDU 295-01 - Special Topic: Education Policy and Politics

4 credits (Spring)
Over the past 60 years schools in America have shifted from highly localized control to increasing influence from state and national policy makers. This shift has politicized education policy, for example placing education policy ideas at the forefront of political campaigns and platforms. This course will explore these trends in education and policy and politics. We will look at how policy is made and how politics influences policy by analyzing both politics and policy.

Prerequisite: EDU 101  or second-year standing.
Instructor: Hastings
