The fourth edition of Schools and Society introduces 24 new articles, plus rewrites and updates of six articles original to this book. In addition, we added a new chapter on the research methods used to study education. This new chapter on methods is structured to connect the methodological design to particular readings that students will find in this book. Finally, renaming chapters was done to better portray the new materials in each section of the book and some readings from the previous edition were moved to other chapters. This reader can be used alone, with a text, or with other readings or monographs. The readings included are appropriate for a variety of courses focusing on the study of education, such as Sociology of Education, Social Foundations of Education, Social Contexts of Education, and the like. This book may be used in departments of sociology, education, social sciences, or others as appropriate.
