In this class, I would like to learn about what kinds of educational policies have led to school reforms that have been effective and helpful and what hasn’t. I also hope to become morefamiliar with the political and legal processes involved and how people can actively pursue actions that lead to changes in the schooling system.
In Education 300 I hope to learn about how education has influenced American history. As well as the importance of a degree in higher education to the future of an individual and the importance of higher education in America.
I would like to learn more about the education reform policies that have been put in place throughout history. As a Community Action minor with a concentration in Education and Social Change, I am particularly interested in learning more about the formal pros and cons of the charter school/lottery system in urban cities.
I hope to learn more about the education reform policies and how they relate to problems we have today like race and social class. I also hope to be able to compare the reform policies from the past and present.
My learning goal for this class is to understand my own education through a more objective lens, while also learning about educational experiences much different than mine.
By taking this course I seek to further understand the way in which American history and politics that have shaped the way we view education today. Having a great interest in socioeconomics and public policy, it is my hope that this course will further my knowledge of both, through the lens of American education.
My long term goals right now don’t exactly focus in on education in the normal sense. I don’t want to be a teacher, or at least right now; I want to be a pediatric oncologist, but as part of that, I want to be able to educate the patients I’m working with. I want to be able to walk away from this class with a greater understanding of what the education system consists of: the struggles, the successes and the failures. I’m not sure how exactly this is going to tie-in to my medical career, but it’s an area I’m interested in, and I think having this knowledge will help me help other people, or at least that’s what I hope.
While taking this class, I hope to further explore my interest in the American school system and the implications it has on the development of our society as a whole. With American Studies as one of my majors, I hope to use this knowledge to assist me when examining American culture in my future classes.
During the semester I hope to learn more about the past educational policies within Hartford and connect them to my experience from Educ 200. The opportunity to expose myself to an actual reform within the community will allow me to have a real life experience with the topics we will learn throughout the semester.
My learning goals for EDUC-300 are to explore how the history of education in the United States is connected to a greater social context, and to draw conclusions on how this is taking place in modern day education reform.
I would like to learn more about the educational policies that existed in the past. Once I have some knowledge about these policies, I would like to explore how each, if any, influenced the development of modern policies. Also, I would like to evaluate how successful educational reforms from the past have effected the educational system today.
In this class I would like to learn about how things have changed within the educational systems over time. I would also like to see to what extent school officials interact with the surrounding communities, if they do at all.
In this class, I’m looking to learn specifically about the way education policy has made an impact over time and the way it has changed. I’m also interested in learning about the way public and private institutions are impacted by policy and about the role of gender in education. In addition, I’m curious to learn about education in urban environments as opposed to rural areas.
There are several things I hope to achieve in Ed 300. To begin, I would love to learn about the old educational system. I would also like to learn how the reforms in the past lead to the reforms that followed. Finally, I hope to learn why the policies are the way they are today and what people are currently working on for new reforms.
