Pub. Date: 08/12/1999
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
One of the most compelling ethnographies of school ever written, Schooling as a Ritual Performance has over a decade made its mark among educators, sociologists, and those seeking to understand the cultural meaning of classroom practices. Not since Paul Willis' Learning to Labor has an educational ethnography about schooling so pushed the limits of current social theory.
