EDUC 8761 - Leadership, Advocacy, Policy, and Law


(6 sem. cr.) Leadership and advocacy go hand-in-hand when seeking to promote policies that support effective practices in education for early childhood and school-age students. In this course, education professionals analyze the connections among advocacy, leadership, and policy by examining the evolution of education legislation and pivotal case law in the United States. They examine change theory and leadership styles, allowing them to reflect on their own and others’ paradigms and to determine best practices to promote positive social change. They also engage in a culminating project through which they construct a professional plan for advocacy and leadership in an area of interest that includes issues of diversity and special needs.
