Course Description

EDUC 423
Educational Leadership and Public Policy

Legislation and public policy determine the fiscal, programmatic, and operational purview of childhood programs. Increasingly, educational administrators and other leaders must exercise political skills to influence policy supportive of their aims. This course explores the interdependence of educational and other disciplines that impact young children and their families through legislation and regulatory decisions, and examines the role of leader-practitioners in influencing policy and regulatory development on local as well as state and national levels.
