About the Course:

The facilitators of this course define education as "the empowerment of individuals as independent, creative thinkers to serve (by means of building, rebuilding, improving, or aiding) their small communities and/or the global community." By the end of this course, students will research the various ways in which the people of California have been dis-empowered in public education institutions and empower their community members through their own learning and projects. 

This course is an attempt to outline and delve into the many her/histories of education in California.  This is a collection of so-called marginal experiences that will be our focus.  The class is aimed at being as interdisciplinary as possible specifically including information from the fields of Ethnic Studies, Education, Public Policy, History, and Law, but also hoping to touch on many more simply by the nature of the class. In turn, students will explore revisions that must be made in the structure of California's public education and alternative methods of education for the people of California per the particular needs of the people of California.
