Education in Rebhausen: A German Village.
Warren, Richard L.
This book is a case study of the role of the school in a rural German village of 3400 inhabitants, Rebhausen, which is undergoing rapid cultural change as a result of industrialization. The school, in this study, is regarded as a transmitter of the community culture and as a potential mediator of cultural change rather than as an academic institution. The study is concerned both with formal systematic aspects of the educational process and with the more informal noncurricular aspects. Discussion centers on the following: (1) Community: tradition and change; (2) School: a preparatory institution; (3) School: its organization, content, and procedure; (4) School: a class in transition; (5) School: authority, its sources and uses. It is concluded that the role of the school will be assessed according to those elements in the school program which are directed at preparing students for a dynamic, urban, technological society.
