Introduction to Comparative Education
EDST 336
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

This course offers an introduction to the field of Comparative and International Education. If the central question is "what is education," then how might a comparative perspective yield some insight? In this course, we will consider education in different contexts, ranging from regional foci such as Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa to country-specific case studies to explore the following questions: What counts as education? What spaces and practices are recognized as educational? Who participates? What social, political, and economic purposes and outcomes are associated with education? Why and how do they make sense? Topics we will explore include gender and education, literacy, and privatization.
