Sources of Social Control in School: A Speculative Essay.
Schlechty, Phillip C.; Burke, William I.
High School Journal, v63 n7 p280-87 Apr 1980
This essay attempts to demonstrate that age segregation and subject matter specialization are two important supports of the authority of teachers and the school's ability to control students. Therefore, efforts to change these organizational patterns without considering alternative means of establishing control are doomed to failure. (Author/SJL)
