This book is about schooling in the U.S. from the particular point of view of ethnography. It tries to show how ethnography, as a field arm of anthropology, can give fresh insights into perplexing educational problems. The fifteen essays included are much more than simply examples of "doing ethnography." They are original explorations of significant educational processes from a sociocultural point of view. Together the chapters constitute an indispensable assemblage of analyses of process and issues in education as well as a consistently high-level demonstration of the utility of ethnography in the study of these processes.
