Gain a proper understanding of K-12 Education: Theory & Practice.

The American Founders recognized the central importance of education for the inculcation of the kind of knowledge and character that is essential to the maintenance of free government. For example, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 states, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” This course will consider the older understanding of the purpose of education, the more recent Progressive approach that has become dominant today, and some essential elements of K-12 education.

The course is delivered via email, with one lesson per week over twelve weeks. Each lesson features lively discussion boards, suggested readings, and weekly quizzes.
