This course reviews the history and philosophy of education. It seeks to help students understand how worldview and philosophy come to expression in schools. Its review of schooling and educational philosophy is focused on helping one understand present educational patterns in Canada and develop one’s own philosophy of education. A Western tradition is not the only important tradition in Canada today and discussions will seek to relate the history and philosophy studied to concerns for equity, multiculturalism, and equal opportunity.
