EDUC 582 - Education Policy and Reform


Education policy, politics, and reform has seen widespread, frenetic activity over the past decades.  As examples, initiatives in content standards, testing and assessment, accountability, and privatization have yielded less than significant change in student achievement.   As educators and leaders, it is important to learn both the theoretical and the practical aspects of educational policy studies.  An entirely theoretical approach to the field risks leaving teachers with many ideas, but no notion of how to implement.  While entirely practical approaches are formulaic and lack vision, leaving teachers with instructions, but no deeper level of understanding necessary to adapt.
