Educ as Soc Institution

Part of the common pedagogical core, this course provides an introduction to the social foundations of education. The structure of education in terms of the rights and responsibilities of teachings, administrators, community members and policy makers in relation to the rest of the society are explored from both legal and sociological credits of view. Comparisons with education and schooling in other countries are made. The study of particular school and professional issues includes diversity, student variability, bilingualism, and special education in terms of their effects on policy, practice, and student and teacher rights.
