Learning Outcome Goals

Primary Goals

  • Students acquire a working knowledge of, and take part in, the important current debates involving the reform and restructuring of K-12 education and educational institutions in the United States.
  • Students understand how existing K-12 educational systems in the US, and the new structures under construction as part of the new K-12 reforms mirror and deviate from important structural, regulatory and administrative models.
  • Students learn to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams to solve multi-dimensional problems using problem-solving structures that will contribute to their success in all professional settings, whether in the private, public or social sectors.
  • Students are exposed to skilled leaders and middle managers, and gain access to employment opportunities, in the new public organizations engaged in K-12 problem-solving and restructuring.
  • Working in cross-professional teams, students gain substantial exposure to the problem-solving activity of transforming public- and social-sector organizations and generate consequential, timely, high-priority, market-quality products for their clients.
