Education, Interaction, and Social Change.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
This book examines the interaction of education and other elements in our culture. The social system of education is seen as similar to that of such other formal social institutions as business. Moreover, an understanding of the role and function of education can be achieved through an application of social science theory and research findings. Throughout the frame of reference is that of the analysis of change. The volume contains chapters on role theory, the concept of bureaucracy, and functionalism; social stratification, social mobility, and community organization; and the development of creativity, education and student values, and selected "social revolutions."
