ETHN 250: Education and Diversity

(1 Unit)
This course introduces prospective educators to the ways in which social inequality affects schooling and schooling affects social inequality. This course is NOT a celebration of difference. Rather, this course is designed to allow students to examine how socially constructed categories (e.g., social class, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, etc.) are used to privilege some individuals and groups and marginalize others. The course focuses mostly on one social institution, urban public schools in the United States; however, we will examine how the other social institutions influence opportunities for success and failure in schools.
