The purpose of the course is to enable students to (A) evaluate and assess policy problems through provision of tools. The course deals more concretely with the use of problems to analyze and produce examinations of the link between education and social inequality (B), questioning whether schools are a mechanism of social equality, enabling less privileged, people living in poverty, and disadvantaged children to get ahead in life or whether schools and societies perpetuate the hardships faced by underprivileged populations. Topics include the importance of quantity and quality of schooling for success; the ways in which ethnicity, gender, and social class background structure students educational experiences; the policy effect of tracking and ability grouping within schools; and the link between schooling, policies and the economy.
