Bonjean, Charles M., Ed.
This double length issue contains twenty articles by political scientists, sociologists, and economists on the current problems and policies in education. The first three articles offer overviews of the areas best represented by the essays in this issue: the economics of education, the politics of education, and the sociology of education. Five articles discuss current financial and economic problems in education. Special emphasis is given to the Rodriguez decision and "no wealth discrimination" within the school districts. Seven articles discuss the politics of education and include topics such as teacher activism, institutionalizing conflict response, and various aspects of political socialization and the educational system. Five articles focusing on sociological issues in education include topics such as the development of a professional self-concept in graduate students, the effects of conflict in obtaining desegregation, the impact of busing on white flight in Florida, the ideological roots and implications of ethnic studies and affirmative action programs, and the impact of social stratification in the choosing of a public or private school for children.
