EDUC 061. Gender and Education

This course examines how gender relations shape everyday life in schools. The course begins with the history and theory of gender and education in the United States, and then explores popular discourse and key debates in the field, with a focus on the core themes of access and equity in urban schools; the intersections of race, class, and sexuality; and the implications of gender issues for school policy and classroom practice. The goal is a reconsideration of what constitutes effective schooling for all students
