About the book: 

This comprehensive anthology features classical readings on the Sociology of Education, as well as original essays by notable contemporary scholars. Assigned as a main text or a supplement, this fully updated Fifth Edition uses the open systems approach to provide readers with a framework for understanding and analyzing the book's range of topics. The editors, both experienced instructors in this subject, have chosen articles that are highly readable, and that represent the field's major theoretical perspectives, methods, and issues.


We gratefully acknowledge Jeanne H. Ballantine and Joan Z. Spade for writing and editing this excellent volume. Special acknowledgement is also due to Joan Z. Spade for creating these instructor resources.
