Research Workshop Report. Sociological Theory and Research in Education.
Eckland, Bruce K.
The purpose of this workshop was to critically examine projects of nine young sociologists and social psychologists who were finalists in the small-grant program for new PhDs sponsored by the Committee on Basic Research in Education (COBRE). Since the awardees who attended the workshop had no prior training or research experience directly related to education, it was also part of the purpose to broaden their knowledge of the current state of sociological theory and research in education. Contained in this workshop report are: 1) an introduction and summary, spelling out the background, rationale, specific objectives, and preliminary results of the workshop; 2) an abstract of each research project and brief report of the workshop discussion on it; 3) descriptions of statements by resource people brought in for the workshop--from Educational Testing Service, National Opinion Research Center, and American Institutes for Research; and 4) papers presented by three consultants, each well known for his contribution to basic research in educational sociology--"Salient Themes in Theory and Research on the Sociology of Education" by C. Arnold Anderson; "On the Significance of Educational Organizations" by Ronald G. Corwin; and "Socialization and Personality in Education: A View From Social Psychology" by Glen H. Elder, Jr. (Author/JLB)
