PPOL 626 - Federalism and Education
This course examines how key federal education programs affect conditions for elementary and secondary students in the United States, emphasizing how the interactions with state and local policies are critical in determining what is ultimately implemented.  Drawing on both historical examples and current policy debates, students will learn how policymakers at each level of government should anticipate reactions from the other levels in designing programs.  Topics include redistributive financing, desegregation, accountability, and common standards. (While many aspects of the general framework for considering these policy challenges hold outside of the US as well as for different levels of schooling, please note that this class is entirely focused on applications in US elementary and secondary policy.)
