I would like to learn about past education practices and how they apply to today’s school system. For example, in what ways does lack of education, in today’s standard, effect the communities that receive inadequate education due to lack of resources and funding. Are the arguments that were being made by figures such as Horace Mann still effective when it comes to strengthening our workforce and maintaining a nation of skilled workers?
Through Education Reform: Past and Present, I would like to gain a strong historical background in the evolution of the U.S. educational system. I also want to gain the necessary understanding to apply this knowledge to present issues surrounding education.
I am very excited to be enrolled in Education Reform Past and Present! As a Public Policy and Law student with a concentration in education policy, this is the perfect course for me. This semester, I hope to learn about the education reforms of the past that have resulted in our current school system. Taking that a step further, I hope to learn more about what reforms we need to consider for the future. I believe education is one of the most important things a society can supply to its citizens, and I hope that this course will help me understand the the most important steps we need to take to better educate America’s children.
My learning goals for Edu 300 includes discovering the realities of present day education and the truth behind education policy. In order to start discovering this realities, I must first understand the education from America’s past and rely it back to the future.
Through Ed Reform: Past and Present I would like to learn about the various teaching styles of educators prior to 2016. I would also like to learn how diversity has changed within the classroom.

Lastly, I am interested in finding out how much the influence of the government has changed in relation to the education system in America. For example, who has a right to receive education now and in the past.
My goal for this class is to hopefully figure out how, through a historical outlook, the American Educational System can be changed. If it can’t be changed, then how can different sources of education be created in order to supplement the existing structures.
I would like to learn how inner city reform is different than suburban reform in the states.

In Ed Reform I would like to learn about the major education movements in the United States. I am interested in understanding the history, challenges, and major shifts within public school education. I am particularly interested in the more modern education movements.
My goal is to learn about the unintended implications of education reform throughout our American history. I believe that when ed reform is created and drafted to policy, many unintended consequences arise that policy makers would not expect. One example is common core, that promotes it is “preparing America’s students for success”, but has left lasting unintended effects.
As Dana Goldstein is beginning to describe in Teacher Wars, I am interested in learning about the battle in education reform and the multi layered results and implications that cause teachers, students, and communities to change.

Through this course I want to learn about how education was formed throughout history and how this influences my own education now. I am interested in learning about how public schools were formed and why and how some are failing very badly in the present. I hope to further my understanding in teaching techniques. I am interested in learning on the process of how these techniques were tested in schools.
In this class, I would like to learn more about how schooling itself, as well as the policies and laws that go along with it, have changed overtime. I want to know about how things have changed between schools then and modern day schools now.
