165. EDUCN 105: Education in Goblal Times: Radical to Conservative Agendas

This is a new course

Contact:Joel Spring
Abstract:The proposed course links students educational experiences with global debates about schooling. These debates include, but are not limited to, i) The role of human capital economics in global schooling. For instance, the current major goal for schooling in America is educating students for global economic competition. As a result, most students now think the purpose of education is job preparation. ii) Education for social justice and social reconstruction as an alternative to human capital goals iii) Social reconstruction goals of Paulo Freire, the libertarian goals of anarchist education proposals, communist forms of schooling, human rights education, environmental education, and the revolt of indigenous populations against the global expansion Western forms of schooling. iv) The impact of global education industries including testing, publishing and software. v) The global marketing of higher education. vi) The impact of a global educational structure on local cultures. Most national school systems now utilize the same educational ladder leading from primary to post-secondary education. Most nations have similar school curricula with variations usually reflecting religious differences vii) The education of transnationals in a world of global migration.
