Overview

This widely used text has been expanded to include the most important issues in contemporary schooling. School and Society, Fourth Edition uses realistic case studies, dialogues, and open-ended questions designed to stimulate thinking about problems related to school and society including curriculum reform, social justice, and competing forms of research. Written in a style that speaks directly to today's educator, this book tackles such crucial questions as: Do school socialize students to become productive workers? Does schooling reproduce social class, and pass on ethnic and gender biases? Can a teacher avoid passing on dominant social and cultural values? What besides subjects do students really learn in schools?
