This course will look at the context for schooling in America in the twenty-first and latter half of the twentieth centuries. We will look at the relationship between what is happening in society and public education; we will also look at the forces both within and outside the school that direct and constrain the process of education. We will pay particular attention to the role of the teacher in the patterns of teaching, learning, determining curricula and governance that characterize schools.
