ED 649A, B Understanding Environments: An Analysis of the Social, Political, Economic, and Legal Forces on Education (2,3)
This two-term strand of study investigates the environmental forces that impact the school. Schools are an integral part of a larger society. The social, political, cultural, legal, and economic issues affecting our world directly influence the planning and day-to-day operation of the school. The practical component of the course uses technology as a tool for the collection, analysis, and interpretation of legal, political, cultural, and financial data. Students interpret their vision in light of available resources and legal constraints.
