URBS545 - INTERFAITH DIALOGUE AND ACTION

This course will focus on the conditions for teaching and learning in urban public schools, current theories of pedagogy in urban education, and perspectives on urban reform efforts. We will begin with an overview of the historical, political, economic, legal and sociocultural factors that shape urban schools. Moving between macro-examinations of the conditions of urban schooling and close up studies of particular schools, we will look at contested terrains in which social issues such as inequality, discrimination and cultural pluralism are being debated and challenged.
