1 Review

Using realistic case studies, dialogues, and open-ended questions, this Fifth Edition 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?

School and Society is one of the five highly regarded books in the Teachers College Press Thinking About Education Series now in its Fifth Edition. All of the books in the series are designed to help pre- and in- service teachers bridge the gap between theory and practice.
