Keep Foundations of Education
Foundations of Education coursework provides a unique and critically important component of teacher education, bringing perspective and meaning to the task of teaching and fostering consideration of the role of public schools in our democracy. Students in our counselor education program enrolled in these courses gain a deeper understanding of the role of education historically and currently, collaborate with future teachers and leaders in ways that forge connections for their future professional roles, and develop wider lenses through which to understand and critically reflect on the issues and concerns in current schools. It is important that student preparing for roles in schools consider the overall aims of education; such as education's role in supporting freedom of thought, social fairness, care for others, and democratic self-government as they prepare for effective and ethical practice. Keep Foundations of Education as a name and requirement.
