Description: Historically one of the few universally experienced institutions in the U.S., the American high school has been an essential rite of passage for youth and an essential building block of democracy. Students in this course will study the historical origins of the high school and examine its roles in the economy, culture, and the lives of youth. Using field study of an urban high school (15 hours of observation required for undergraduates), students will analyze the contemporary high school and debate about its future. Cross-list: EDUC 530.
