Urban Education Policy and the Politics of Reform
EDST 349
Fall 2022
Section: 01  

This course examines enduring issues embedded in the policy and politics of urban education reform. This course will introduce students to a broad range of education reform strategies, such as market-based approaches to education, state takeover of school districts, and enhancing school, family, and community partnerships. Additionally, we will examine the political dynamics that propel reform efforts. This course conceptualizes urban as a geographic location and as a specific set of issues associated with urban environments. Although we will primarily focus on the policy and politics of education reforms within the context of urban centers across the United States, students will have opportunities to apply their knowledge to a wide range of contexts. This course fulfills the Category 2 requirement of the Education Studies Major and Minor.
