EDLDRS 710 - The Culture of Urban Schools

3 Credit(s)

This required course, taken in the student’s second spring, focuses on inquiry into the nature of urban schools, including social contexts and structural inequalities. Participants study social and cultural practices and relations in an urban school site, examine how structural concerns influence school culture and read studies of urban schools that highlight problems, successes, struggles and transformations. Through active dialogue with their peers, they reflect upon the complexities of daily life and change in urban schools and identify questions and directions for further exploration.
