    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Whether you would like to be a teacher or not this course is beneficial to your everyday knowledge. This course provides you with the full background story of how the school system came to be and why it is how it is now!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was this particular professor's end of the quarter assignment, the Policy Brief. We learned and demonstrated how to come up with our own policy and determine how to put it into effect and make it beneficial to our stakeholders.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to do the readings. Everything is in the books. Even information not needed for the quizzes or finals is just interesting information to learn about.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it shows an understanding of the importance of education in k-12 grades. Early education is as important as secondary education. This course shows many challenges education policies and the history of school in the US.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were learning the drastic difference of the income gap in education. As the racial gap have decreased, the income gap has increased. I learned that the income gap has been increasing because parents are able to afford tutors, sports, music classes and enriching activities that lower social economic status parents can not afford. It opens your eyes to the large gap in education.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advice to keep up with the reading. There are a lot of articles to read but it is very entertaining and fun. If you attend class and do the reading you will pass the class.
