Sociology of Education: A Critical History and Prospects for the Future
Lauder, Hugh; Brown, Phillip; Halsey, A. H.
Oxford Review of Education, v35 n5 p569-585 Oct 2009
This paper examines the sociology of education from the perspective of its recent history and attempts to assess the current state of the field. The authors argue that cognate disciplines such as economics and social policy have taken over some of the key questions that were once the preserve of sociology of education. This raises the question of what is lost if the sociology of education is no longer making a significant contribution, in key areas, to the major educational, social and economic issues of the day. (Contains 3 notes.)
