Critical Issues II
This course, offered in the second summer, examines a range of critical issues of importance to urban school leaders in the context of the changing relationship between schools and society. Issues discussed in Critical Issues I typically include demographic changes in the K-12 student population, multiculturalism, desegregation, bilingual education, special education, tracking, curricular and pedagogical reform, school reform movements and school finance reform. Critical Issues II covers fewer issues in greater depth; typical issues might include conflict resolution or the relationship between educational technology and school change.
