This class critically engage with the history and contemporary politics of comparative higher educational structures and reform movements across Asia. We will explore and analyze the present issues currently being discussed as reform initiatives in Asian countries. The course will look at the multitude of ways in which Asian higher educational structures are controlled by neoliberal economic policies and more specifically being influenced by educational privatization models that are increasingly the trend in the US. The class will investigate the ways in which there is room for transforming current profit-driven educational models with more of a Freirian vision of education model that is based in social justice and transformation.
Power, Community and Social Justice Independent Work Multiple Cultural Perspectives Writing and Research Students are expected to spend 6-8 hours weekly on work and preparation outside of class time.
