This presentation is partial satisfaction of ED 251, Education For a Democratic, Pluralistic Society. This is an advanced study of the economic, social, historical, philosophical issues related to the schools, students, and the society.
In the course, we address the implications of theories and research concerning the history of education and schools, the nature of learning, values, democratic education, pluralism, equal opportunity, and barriers to the above.
