  Course Description
This course provides an introduction to the sociology of education. Specific topics include: conflict over the purposes of education; how those purposes are--or are not--translated into actual classroom life and practices; and how race/ethnicity, class and gender relations affect students' experiences. A key focus of the course is the mechanisms through which educational and socio-economic inequalities are produced ¿on the ground¿ of existing educational arrangements, policy and practice, as well as the amelioration of such inequalities so as to provide broader based opportunities for historically marginalized groups. As we engage these topics, we discuss the varying theoretical and methodological approaches used by scholars, as they conceptualize, conduct, and write up the results of their research. ELP 585 fulfills the Foundations requirement in TEI. Our program goals and learning outcomes are available online. This course is aligned with one of the specified learning outcomes, as follows: Demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the social issues that impact education (formal and informal) on an national and international level.
