Culture of Schools. Final Report. Volume II
American Anthropological Association, Washington, DC.
Volume II of this 4-volume report contains the second half of a report on the Conference on the Culture of Schools held at Greystone, New York, (the first half of the conference report appears in Vol. I, SP 003 900), and the first part of a report on the Colloquium on the Culture of Schools held at the New School for Social Research in 1966. (The second part of the New School report appears in Vol. III, SP 003 902.) Topics presented at the Greystone conference included: the differences between mass schooling and mass education; the failure of schools to socialize children of minority groups, and classroom research methodology. The second conference consisted of short, controversial papers followed by discussion. The participants discussed education in its widest social context, linking the crisis in American education to questions of societal instability. Discussion fell into four general topics: a critical view of American education; the art and science of teaching; education and social change; and the philosophy of modern education.
