Course Description

EDUC 110
Communities, Schools, and Critical Social Theory

This course examines the links between schools and the social structure—the social, economic and political factors that have shaped conditions in urban schools and communities. For instance, the socioeconomic context of urban schools provides an important examination of the role of schooling in a stratified society and provides the theoretical grounding for the course. Critical Social Theories of race/ethnicity, class, gender, and culture will be utilized as frameworks through which to explore the development and current conditions of urban communities, schools, and society.
