EDU 212 - Critical Pedagogy and School Reform

4 credits (Fall)
This course is a study of critical pedagogy from its roots in Marxism and the Frankfurt School through current-day theoretical connections (postmodernism, critical theory, critical feminism, and critical race theory) and their relevance to American public education. We will examine the dual character of schools that helps to explain some difficulties of school reform; that is, the democratic promise of schooling on the one hand, and its institutional service to a society based on race, class, and gender privilege on the other.

Prerequisite: EDU 101 .
Note: Plus-2 option available. Not offered every year.
