MSU Ed.D. Program - Cohort 1

Cohort 1 - MSU Ed. D Program
Saturday was the first day of MSU's newly-created Doctorate in Educational Leadership program, pictured at right are my classmates. There was an introductory portion, then we plunged right into the discussion of the week's reading -- Public Goods, Private Goods: The American Struggle over Educational Goals -- by former MSU and current Stanford professor David Labaree. Public Good, Private Goods provides a good primer on the history of education in the United States, then Labaree spends the majority of the paper on the three goals of American education, in his view: democratic equality, social efficiency, and social mobility.

A luncheon followed the morning session, and it was nice to become reacquainted with the cohort, and welcome the new members.
