Critical and Cont Issues in Ed

Course Description

This course engages students in observations, interactions, and analyses of critical and contemporary education issues. Students investigate issues influencing the social and political contexts of educational settings in Georgia and the United States. Students actively examine the teaching profession from multiple vantage points both within and outside the school. Against this backdrop, students reflect on and interpret the meaning of education and schooling in a diverse culture and examine the moral and ethical responsibilities of teaching in a democracy. Ten hours of field experience in an approved educational setting are required.
