Growing Foundations Through Community Education
Harris, Ian M.
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v38 n3 p254-263 2005
During the past thirty years, while foundations of education programs have been shrinking on American campuses, faculty in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee created an undergraduate degree program in community education that has attracted older, nontraditional students. Using a curriculum that provides skills and understandings needed to improve urban communities and schools, the Department of Educational Policy and Community Studies expanded on traditional notions of educational foundations to create courses for students from all over campus interested in studying the complex dynamics of race and class in urban environments.
