CIMT 475 - Critical Thinking and Ethics in Education
Description This Foundational Studies Ethics and Social Responsibility Division Elective focuses on an examination of current ethical and social issues related to public education from a taxpayer perspective. As citizens and as students who are or will become parents of publically educated children, students must understand the ethical and social responsibility associated with public education. This course helps accomplish this in the context of the times and the generation to which the students belong. Enabling emphases include a review of critical thinking and information literacy and the subsequent application of both to the analysis of a current education issue. Topics include but are not limited to such areas as NCLB, public education reform, school performance, home schooling, charter schools, and standardized testing.
