In taking this course, I hope to further my knowledge about the educational system of our country, and how they have changed along with the times. So far, I think I picked to the right course to learn about that kind of stuff.
Specifically, I am interested in System Building vs. Decentralization. I helped out in HPS last year and definitely recognized that things were different than I thought they’d be. I am curious to hear the opinions of scholars who have spent their lives trying to determine the best way to educate the American youth, and hopefully form a belief of my own.
