Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term) - K-12 School Reform

Joanne S. Weiss

This course explores K-12 education policymaking in the context of dramatic changes to the status quo, but an unclear future. We will focus on differing perspectives and solutions for a diverse array of issues--from standards, assessments, and accountability to teachers/school leaders to governance, turnarounds, and school choice. The course will be anchored in the reality of policymaking--digesting the research on a topic, making/supporting policy recommendations. Students will work with 'live issues' in ed reform, analyze them, and recommend paths forward.

Other Requirements:
WWS Graduate Students Only.
