This widely used text has been expanded to include the most important issues in contemporary schooling, including:

  • New end-of-chapter sections for Further Reading.
  • New references added to the useful Additional Resources section.

School and Society, Fifth Edition uses realistic case studies, dialogues, and open-ended questions designed to stimulate thinking about problems related to school and society, including curriculum reform, social justice, and competing forms of research. Written in a style that speaks directly to today’s educator, 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?

School and Society is one of the five books in the highly regarded Teachers College Press THINKING ABOUT EDUCATION SERIES, now in its Fifth Edition. All of the books in this series are designed to help pre- and in-service teachers bridge the gap between theory and practice.
