There are still seats available in Dr. Jennifer Lee’s SOC-S312 #12637 Education and Society course.
This course is an introduction to current issues in the sociology of education. The goal of this course is to ask some fundamental questions about the relationship between education and society. In this class, we will look at the structure, practices, content, and outcomes of schooling, in light of their relationships to the wider society in which schools are situated. We will note the link between schools and societal stratification, discuss the outcomes of schooling and how these outcomes are produced, and consider sociological perspectives on contemporary education reform.
