Sociology of Education: Outlines towards a Diagnosis and Thoughts on Some Major Challenges
Baeck, Unn-Doris Karlsen
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v56 n6 p659-669 2012

As the general social scientific and political focus on inequality decreased, the sociology of education also became less visible. At the same time, the sociology of youth evolved, and brought with it a shift from theories of reproduction towards theories of individualization and cultural detachment. New challenges for sociology of education are also discussed. These are related to the educational system's position as the main socialization arena for young people, as well as new developments within educational policy, and thus within school. What kind of identities are "produced" within the educational system? (Contains 2 footnotes.)
