This text provides a selective review of major topics in the sociology of education with special attention given to key issues and questions that sociologists have examined when studying education and schools. It is an introduction, not a comprehensive guide, to work that has been conducted mainly in Britain. The focus is on empirical material, and considerable space is given to an examination of statistical data and case studies to see what light they shed on the contribution that sociologists can make to the study of education. The text covers the following topics: (1) sociological perspectives and the study of education; (2) education, the economy, work, and unemployment; (3) educational opportunity and patterns of social mobility; (4) patterns of inequality: social class and education; (5) patterns of inequality: gender, race, and education; (6) the social characteristics of teachers in contemporary society; (7) the social organization of schools; (8) life in classrooms; (9) the school curriculum; (10) sociological enquiry and educational studies. An index and an extensive list of references are included. (Ps)

It identifies, through contributions from the USA and Britain, some of the major processes involved, examines the problems of conducting research and evaluation and the ways in which they can be overcome, and details case studies in which problems and processes are encoun

Reflections on field experience( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last decade has witnessed a considerable increase in research that could be broadly described as ethnographic, qualitative or a case study among investigators working within such disciplines and areas of study as sociology, criminology and education, as well as sub-fields like industrial relations and the sociology of health and healing. Such work draws on a style of investigation traditionally used by social anthropologists and includes methods such as participant observation, unstructured interviews and documentary evidence. This range of research methods is commonly included under the term field research and qualitative methodology. It is the intention of these research annuals on qualitative research to take up issues and debates in this area that relate to: methodology, the relationship between data collection and data analysis, this relationship between theory and method and the implications of qualitative research for social policy and evaluation."--Publisher's website
