SOCI230 - SPECIAL TOPIC SOCI

Topics vary from semester to semester.
Section 301 - LEC
This class will look at the historical development of the issue of educational inequality in South Philadelphia, a largely poor and working-class area undergoing some of the most dramtic social change in the city. In particular, we will focus on the racial and class politics of educational reform, education funding, and charter schools. We will use sociological theories to assess the evidence related to a number of pressing questions central to these politics. This course has a significant ABCS component in which students will volunteer assisting teachers at on of the city's most diverse neighborhood public schools: Andrew Jackson (K-8).
