EDUC 067. Fight for #PhlEd: Urban Educational and Environmental Justice

This course examines urbanism and environmental justice as seen through the lens of urban education politics. Course readings, discussions and related field experiences will focus on key issues and debates confronting urban education as it relates to urban development and environmental sustainability and justice. We will draw on theories and approaches from critical geography and critical theories of race and political economy to examine research, policy, pedagogy and social movements as vehicles for addressing the challenges that shape the conditions of teaching, learning and community development. We will focus on - and try to build alongside - the city of Philadelphia, its racially and ethnically diverse communities, and its public schools.
