ED 506 Historical Foundations of Education

(3 credits)
Explore the changing educational beliefs and practices through medieval, renaissance, enlightenment, and modern Western societies. Specific focus is on the rise of public institutions in the United States, beginning with the common (elementary) school and the subsequent extension of educational rights to higher (secondary and post-secondary) education. Consider the historical relations among schools, culture, politics, and power as a way to understand contemporary educational beliefs and practices.
