EDU 214 - Inequalities of Opportunity

Course unit(s): 1
Meets GAR: Meets general academic requirement SL and DE.
Despite the Supreme Court’s inscription of equality of educational opportunity as a national principle of “simple justice” in 1954, US pre-K-16 school systems remain unable to solve the experience and achievement gaps that leave low-income youth and young adults disadvantaged in multiple ways. This course will examine the place-based contexts of educational inequalities as they limit access, achievement and social mobility for immigrant teens in New York City, African-American young adults in Baltimore, working class women at a midwestern flagship university, and Latinx teens in Los Angeles. The course will also challenge students to develop their own placed-based theories of change.
