EDU 295-02 - Special Topic: Anti-Oppressive Education in “Elite” Schools: Impossible or Indispensable?

4 credits (Spring)
What does it mean for an “elite” school to commit to an education rooted in social justice? What motivates this commitment? How can it be done well? What can go wrong? And is it even possible? This course explores critiques of and attempts at anti-oppressive education in P-20 schools serving predominantly white, affluent students through course readings, virtual field trips, and conversations with students and teachers in the field. 

Prerequisite: EDU 101 ANT 104 GWS 111 , or SOC 111 .
