EDUC-6221: Seeing Systems: Peace, Justice and Sustainability

This course constructs a critical, historical and philosophical context for today’s issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and other identity markers, closely examining culture and how it affects education and learning. The perspective of equity calls attention to systemic, public policy, ethical, and legal issues concerning access to schools, allocation of resources, social and cultural relationships, and educational outcomes. This class explores these issues as they are associated with a variety of social groups, especially those holding lesser power, status, and wealth. Finally, the course addresses how students and teachers from diverse backgrounds can approach cultural differences in the classroom. This interdisciplinary course weaves the complex challenges of peace, justice and sustainability into a coherent vision of a world that works well for everyone. Using systems thinking, students in this course will explore the interconnections of these three concepts, their principles, the systems and values that contribute to or prevent them, and approaches to solutions that will help us realize them.
