Survey of Teaching the Politics of Education.
Johnson, I. T.
In this study, questionnaires were sent to 191 university departments of educational administration and political science in October 1969 to determine whether the departments offered courses in the politics of education. The 179 respondents identified 45 courses or sequences of courses offered at U.S. and Canadian universities. A table of responses, listed alphabetically by state, is presented. It was noted that the majority of courses identified are intended to serve advanced graduate students and are offered as electives. Responses covering 37 of the 45 courses indicated that during 1969, about 1100 students took courses in the politics of education. Of these, 60 percent were doctoral students, 32 percent, masters degree students, and 8 percent, undergraduates. The majority of the students were specializing in educational administration and aspired to be school administrators or administrators of higher education. Information on the instructors is presented in a table which lists the names and addresses of professors teaching courses in the politics of education alphabetically by state. Respondents submitted bibliographies for 28, syllabi for 25, and catalog descriptions for 2 of the 45 politics of education courses identified. Substantial variation from campus to campus was noted.
