Robert Dreeben emphasizes the relationship between school structure and learning outcomes, the importance of these outcomes to other social institutions, and the contrasts between school structure and other socializing agencies. A new prologue by the author places the book into the context of subsequent developments in sociology of education. Originally published by Addison-Wesley in 1968.

Robert Dreeben, University of Chicago, Chicago, IllinoisReview:
From the reviews "Robert Dreeben's work cuts across many aspects of the sociology of education and is at the background of a whole range of discussions in the field. In this context On What Is Learned in School remains a most important document. The book has been my on own course reading list for decades and remains there now. It has many followers and is a landmark achievement." John W. Meyer, Stanford University "[O]ne of the very best books written about the sociology of schools. The book benefits from a clear theoretical perspective, which illuminates the dynamics of a personality as it passes from the world of the family of origin to the adult world of work and politics." Amitai Etzioni in Sociology of Education "Dreeben has fleshed out . . . the bare bones of an argument that Parsons first advanced in an article on the school class as a social system . . . and has contributed his own theoretical insights into the relationship of the structure of the school to the socialization process." Jan J. Loubser in Sociology of Education
