Schools and Societies

Schools and Societies

January 1998 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
For use as the core text for Sociology of Education courses offered in Sociology Departments and Social Foundations of Education courses offered in Schools of Education. ""Schools and Societies is a gem of volume that combines in one comprehensive text superb theoretical acuity and scholarly judgment, a keen sense of the connection of research to policy, and a breadth of coverage that reflects the multidimensionality of education as an institution in a manner rare in social-scientific treatments of education. It deserves to be the leading survey of this field for a long time to come." Paul DiMaggio, Princeton University
