Dear Current and Prospective Students, Faculty, and Alumni,
If curriculum and classroom teaching are the meat and potatoes of schooling, education policy is the supply line that determines whether the basic ingredients are available, affordable, fresh, and of high quality. The faculty and programs that have come together in Teachers College's newest unit, the Department of Education Policy and Social Analysis (EPSA) focus on how governments, markets, and societal conditions shape schooling and the broader enterprise of creating a population that is informed about the challenges and opportunities it confronts, able to critically analyze its needs and interests, and prepared to work together to make a better world.
