EDLF 7606 - Comparative Education

Both similarities and differences in educational practices, problems, and cultures abound in the world today. We will focus throughout the course on the sociocultural context of education, addressing values, ideology, practices and policies as they are found across a diverse selection of nations and societies. What can we learn from comparisons? What theories currently shape international educational developments? By gaining knowledge about how other countries approach key issues in education, it is hoped that students can broaden their understanding of their own educational practices, beliefs, and policies, and work toward more effective educational practice in an increasingly global educational arena.
