The Function of Education. Technical Training or Social Control?
Squires, Gregory D.
Journal of Intergroup Relations, 5, 1, 37-54, Mar 76
Suggests that it is not the technical abilities of the better educated person or the skills required on the job which accounts for the matching of better educated people with the more desirable jobs. Social control is the primary objective of those who dispense privilege and who do so on the basis of educational attainment. (Author/AM)
