Candidates will investigate the economic, historical, political and sociological factors that contribute to the current state of American school systems.  This investigation will begin with broad national trends including school re-segregation and social stratification, school choice, privatization, and teacher evaluation.  Candidates will then explore the effects of those national trends on the urban education systems in which they live and work.  Candidates will be challenged to identify opportunities to affect change by participating in the policy dialog surrounding urban education. 3 credit hours
