EDU 5932 Research Social Justice

In this course, students explore how graduate research projects can promote social justice and drive institutional change for youth and communities marginalized by systems of inequality. Students analyze how teacher leaders successfully advocate for educational equity even as they work within institutions structured by larger socio-cultural, economic, and political forces. This course will have a practical emphasis on designing research projects that are fundamentally grounded in communication and collaboration with the school community, that engage key stakeholders "for real" in the research process, and that build relationships of reciprocity and respect between members of the school community.
