Course Description: This course focuses on educational trends in developed countries. Students develop an integrated understandings of key educational reforms and developments as experienced across Western societies, as well as their interactions with demographic trends, economic changes, and social developments, especially as these relate to youth policy, labour market dynamics, and education policies. Placing such themes in comparative perspective enables students not only to be aware of major overseas trends in education but also to develop advanced skills in analyzing and contextualizing them. The course examines how educational developments in the West impacts agendas for educational change globally. The course begins with an examination of Great Britain, a country whose education system has experienced numerous reforms under the Blair Labour Government. It then focuses on the United States of America, a country that historically placed importance on the training of good citizens in public schools, and whose various experiences with education funding have provoked lively and sometimes bitter national debates. France and Germany provide further case studies of education systems in turmoil as their respective governments attempt to provide the best education system possible to prepare their youth for a world that is changing at an ever-increasing rate.
