The course will provide opportunities to examine and analyze important aspects of your own educational system regardless of where you operate and regardless of the prevailing cultural, ideological and material backgrounds. As this is a graduate course, it is important for you to be open-minded and receptive to the perspectives presented even if you do not agree with them. Examination of topics will occur largely within the context of their effects on education.
