In this course, we will take a look at schooling in South Africa, Finland, China, Pakistan, and the USA, and reflect on how practices are similar to or different from our own experiences of schooling. We will examine a variety of texts, watch video clips, hear from guest lectures, and have discussions to explore the successes and failures of K-12 educational systems of different regions, whilst also identifying the attitudes of multiple stakeholders within these nations toward education. This course will require your active participation within and beyond our time together.
