Education | Politicians, Money Power: The Academy and Public Policy
U212 | 34194 | Joshua Morrison
This course is about the public policy process as seen in higher
education. The course will be of interest to students pursuing
undergraduate degrees in any field of education, as well as students
in SPEA, College of Arts & Sciences, and others where an
understanding of the role of the state government is of assistance.
We will explore the role of politicians, money, and power in the
public policy process as seen in education. This includes both
higher (postsecondary) education, as well as some examples from the
K-12 sector. The focus is on Indiana as a context, but students may
elect to review cases from other states as they desire.
