Suitable for sociology and social foundation of education courses found in Education and Sociology departments.
This text takes a new and current look at sociology of education. By examining the culture and society of today, we can understand how education - how we teach, what we should teach - is shaped by the world around us.
The text brings a range of tools and concepts from cultural analysis and social theory and applies these to the field of education and education’s place within the emerging Information Society. Students will be encouraged to see how this new understanding can offer insights, challenges and activities to their role as teachers.
