The course will focus on current issues in education and social policy, beginning with an analysis of the case for public intervention in the market for education. We will then turn to considering key policy debates and options for addressing important problems - including both policies aimed at the education sector(i.e., public schools) and those affecting other sectors (i.e., housing policy). Particular attention will be paid to reviewing and weighing the evidence base for policy making and considering alternative solutions.
