1 Review
The new edition has been expanded to include the most important issues in contemporary schooling, including: * A new section that utilizes the lenses of Functionalism, Conflict Theory, and Interpretivism to provide alternative readings of recent federal and state mandates regarding accountability, standards, and hightakes testing. * New references added to the useful Annotated Bibliography. This book tackles such crucial questions as: Do schools 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?
