Course Description: This course provides students with a foundation in the social scientific study of education. It critically examines the social, political, and economic contexts of education. Key issues concerning difference and inequality in education are explored through sociological and historical approaches. These include social class, gender and cultural diversity in education, as well as the schooling market, school systems, and globalization. At the end of the course, students are able to discuss the impact of a range of educational practices and policies on schools, students, and families. Similarly, students become familiar with broad movements in contemporary educational reform and their association with national and global economic change. As a result of working collaboratively on a substantial project, students develop a range of research skills. Through policy analysis tasks and workshop activities, students become familiar with NSW Department of Education and Communities policies and procedures relating to gender, Indigenous education, and cultural diversity.
