Educational Theory and Policy
Educational Theory & Policy
The Educational Theory and Policy Program has a dual mission:
1. One mission is to provide service to the undergraduate teacher preparation programs.
2. The second, a graduate degree mission, is to offer interdisciplinary preparation for the analysis of the interrelationships between schools and other social institutions (e.g., the family, the state, the economic system) in the context of the equally important relation between education and culture. The goals of such analyses are to understand the nature and context of ideas, and of educational processes, and to understand and evaluate policies. From this inclusive perspective, existing educational systems, formal and non-formal, both in the United States and abroad, are analyzed respecting the adequacy of their goals, functions, and consequences.
