Education and Society: This course is an introduction to current
issues in the sociology of education. We will look at the structure,
practices, content, and outcomes of schooling, in light of their
relationships to the wider society in which schools are situated. We
will note the link between schools and societal stratification,
discuss the outcomes of schooling and how these outcomes are produced,
and consider sociological perspectives on contemporary education reform.
