EDU 546 Public Policy

3 Semester Units

Public policy reviews educational policy from a micro and macro perspective. In addition, it reviews the general concepts of public policy, and looks at the socioeconomic context of the school, as it relates to economics, demographics, politics, culture and values. It also analyzes the policy process, the key players, and the typical issues involved, as well as a historical perspective to aid in understanding the current education reform climate.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Examine the dimensions of educational policy in the United States.
  • Analyze the politics of policy as it plays out at the local, state, and federal levels.
  • Trace the progress of educational conditions and issues as they become translated into policy proposals, enacted, implemented and evaluated.
  • Track the evolution of educational policy through the major periods of American educational history.
