This course explores culturally plural societies, the construction of schools, and how these relate to social and educational policies. The course is designed with a student-centred learning focus. It is, in part, determined by their decision-making process as part of a critical pedagogical approach. There is thus considerable flexibility in the program. Key themes relating to 'core' values are explored in the context of cultural and educational theories. Historical, political, philosophical, social and economic perspectives can be included in the analysis of educational systems both in Australia and internationally. These, as well as alternative orientations to cultural pluralism, are examined regarding epistemologies, curriculum, school organisations and educational policy.
