Community Perspectives on School & Society

Education and employment are increasingly driven by globalization; this loss of local control is a worldwide phenomenon. What happens to communities and our sense of belonging in the new “global marketplace?” What does it mean to be a citizen in a consumerist society? This course considers how teachers and schools can respond to these massive social, economic, and technological changes. Topics include cultural identity, social justice, and human and ecological development in both rich and poor countries.
