The Process of Schooling: A Psychological Examination.
The concern of this book is with the underlying forces responsible for the very existence of schools and for what schools accomplish. The author offers a "theory of spontaneous schooling," in which mechanisms for academic growth are found when adults and children are in contact in almost any kind of administrative arrangement. Schooling is seen as an organic process. The book offers preliminary sociological speculations and a psychological analysis in defense of this theory. Also included is a section on implications and elaborations. (NH)
