Child Policy

SED AP 631

The purpose of this course is to examine the public policies that address all children's wellbeing in the context of health, education, and social forces. We will take an inter-disciplinary approach (developmental psychology, economics, sociology, and public health) to focus particularly on the needs and vulnerabilities of economically disadvantaged and/or racially or ethnically marginalized children. We will discuss the arguments for policy intervention (both domestic and global) during childhood (ages 0- 12), and we will focus on 4-5 specific policy topics in depth.
