EXPLORING UK EDUCATION

 

The course will provide a comparative lens to understand issues of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and immigration status in the UK context - and compare them to U.S. experiences. The course will also expose students to P-16 perspectives and experiences, where issues of vocational training, financial support, and policy implementation both parallel and contrast with the U.S. context.
