SOC 2250 - [Schooling and Society]

(SBA-AS) (CU-SBY)     
Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

K. Bischoff.

The primary goal of this course is to understand the relationship between education and society, with an emphasis on exploring educational inequality. To accomplish this, we will ask questions such as: What is the purpose and product of schools? How do schools reproduce social class, racial, and gender inequality? What is the relationship between education and future success? How are schools structured? What factors increase educational success? To answer these, and related questions, we will use classical and contemporary sociological theory and research. The course culminates in a research project of each student’s own choosing.
