Learning Goals

Posted on

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.

I chose this topic because I’m interested to see how Margaret Haley's vision of teachers unions in 1904 compare and contrast with the ideas of unionists today, because many of her concerns seem to still resonate. It’s amazing that its veracity transcends a time-span of well over 100 years.
