Education: Problem or Solution

While there is agreement that education is key to individual and community well-being, much controversy exists over education’s goals and how to achieve them. Issues include identifying education challenges and effective solutions, recognizing how social or economic status interacts with education, and examining what role political ideologies play. Students engage with a variety of speakers, site visits, and readings, and will discuss key issues, such as school choice and assessment, through creative exercises, as we collaboratively explore this complex topic.
