This course provides students with an introduction to the sociological study of education. Through investigating the relationship between society, social diversity, and contemporary education systems, the course prepares students to explore and understand equity issues in schooling, to reflect on education policy and their teaching practices, and the ways in which educators might contribute to a just society through the creation of socially and culturally inclusive educational environments.
