Becoming adult in a changing society by James S Coleman( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and French and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication focuses on a conceptual and research-oriented analysis of the broader issues related to the transition to adulthood. The introduction discusses the societal changes in the highly industrialized countries since World War ii which have extensive consequences for youth. The concept of youth as a stage and a lifestyle falling between adolescence and adulthood is explored along with the implications of the concept for the industrial nations. Part I of the report presents an interdisciplinary, descriptive overview of changing concepts and viewpoints relating to the transition to adulthood. The implications of these changes for schooling and on the economy and the labor market are discussed. Part ii of the report explores the current relationships and changes among the three major institutions of work, family, and school as they affect the transition to adulthood. The third and final part of the report identifies a number of possible policy responses, within and outside of education, to the problems analyzed in the first sections. This section also identifies areas where further research is needed. Reference notes and a four-page bibliography conclude the report. (Mcf)

Social background and educational career; research perspectives on equality of educational opportunity by Torsten Husén( Book )

15 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monograph the author considers the basic concepts of the social dimensions of scholastic ability and reviews some of the more salient findings of research that can be brought to bear on the problem of equality of educational oppoutunity. Emphasis is placed on how access to school and school attainments are related to social background. Chapter 1 is an attempt to clarify what is meant by equality of educational opportunity. Three different stages in the development of this concept are distinguished and certain inherent incompatibilities are brought out. Chapter 2 sets out to show that the concept of ability has to be conceived of in a sociological and not in an individual -psychological context. In a comprehensive review of the research on the reserves of talent conducted in Europe and the United States, Sweden is presented as an illustrative case of how the methodology in this particular area of study has developed. Chapter 4 demonstrates how various, mainly structural, features of the formal educational system affect educational opportunity. The author makes recommendations implicit in the findings reviewed and briefly discusses strategies by which they might be implemented. (Author/SHM)

Higher education and social stratification : an international comparative study by Torsten Husén( Book )

13 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social stratification process is analyzed from a theoretical point of view, with assumptions tested with empirical evidence from the International Institute for Educational Planning project in developing countries or with information obtained through the researcher's prior studies on industrialized countries. The significant, and often negative, consequences due to the problem of social stratification are discussed in relation to the educational and occupational careers of educated youth. The subject is introduced by noting linkage between education and employment, egalitarian policies in education, and a historical perspective. Egalitarian philosophies in education are considered along with aspects of the equality problem relevant to developing countries. The role of formal education as a social stratifier is explored. A comparative perspective on education and social stratification in developing countries as well as differences between developed and developing countries with regard to social stratification are offered. Information is included on university graduates in developing countries focused on social background and social destination. Among the conclusions are: social stratification in all societies is enhanced by competition, selectivity and a meritocratic reward system; because institutions of higher education in developing countries serve subsistence economies with a limited modern sector, their post-primary enrollment patterns have no historical parallel in the developed economies; and home background in third-world countries tends to have less impact on access, survival, and outcomes of secondary and higher education than in industrialized countries. Tables and references are provided, and 50 references are appended. (Sm)
