GED 7080 - Philosophical and Sociological Backgrounds in Education


(3)

In order to better understand the philosophical foundations of education, candidates examine the philosophies of the Perennialists, the Essentialists, the Pragmatists, the Social Reconstructionists, and others. Candidates are expected to explore in-depth educational philosophical problems of their own selection. This course also provides a study of the relationship of elementary, secondary, and higher education in the United States and the sociological environment in which they function. It is intended that the candidate increases his/her ability to be perceptive about social environment and its influence upon human development and behavior. As candidates in the discipline of education, there should be increased ability to use social realities and understanding in working with the processes inherent in education.
