Summary

Comprehensive, contemporary, and cross-cultural in perspective, this book provides a sociological approach to education-- from several theoretical approaches and their practical application, to current educational issues, to the structure and processes that make education systems work.

Diagrams show interrelationships between topics. For educators and anyone interested in the sociology of education and schools.
