Course Description

EDUC 227
Issues of Race and Ethnicity in Education

This course will explore the social, cultural, economic, pedagogical, and psychological experiences of race and ethnicity in schools and classrooms. We will focus on developing a deeper understanding of the ways race and ethnicity shape students' educational experiences; investigating why even well-meaning educational reforms often fail to adequately address racial and ethnic inequity in education; and exploring effective efforts to better address the needs of students of color and their families.
