Hello! My name is Emily Connuck and I am currently a sophomore at Tulane University in new Orleans! I'm extremely interested and involved in public education, although I never had the opportunity to take any formal classes in education politics. Through teaching myself about the field over many years I have learned a lot, and now would love to help others learn how to navigate the storm of education news, figure out their own views and values concerning education, and hopefully take the education world by storm!
We will learn about the current state and the current players in education politics through discussion and research. Students will learn about current issues and examine them from multiple perspectives and will consider their own education beliefs and relate them to modern American education politics. The class will depend on the research of the students, with extra information and guidance coming from classmates and the facilitator!
There will be 5 classes, each lasting approximately an hour. Students will be expected to do research outside of class time.
