The Schooled Society examines how education has come to occupy a central place in society and how its function and form continue to evolve. Structured around the three core roles of modern schooling - selection, social organization, and socialization-the authors integrate classical and contemporary theoretical approaches to discuss schooling within a sociological framework. This new second edition is a concise, yet comprehensive, examination of schooling at the K-12 and post-secondary levels.
