As a history major, I am very interested in the history of the education system of America. Therefore, this class seems to fit perfectly in what I am interested. I hope to learn how the education system got to where it is now. The main reason I want to learn this is because I want to be able to analyze potential ways to continue to reform and improve the education system. I hope to learn about the history and be able to apply it to the present and future.
In addition, I hope to learn journalistic writing and overall improve my writing skills. I am very excited about having to attend and critique a public event on educational policy. I think that it will be very interesting to view the current issues and problems that the education world is dealing with. Furthermore, I am excited to be able to relate it to the history of education reform.
