Education , discipline that is concerned with methods of teaching and learning in schools or school-like environments as opposed to various nonformal and informal means of socialization e. Education refers to the discipline that is concerned with methods of teaching and learning in schools or school-like environments, as opposed to various nonformal and informal means of socialization. Beginning approximately at the end of the 7th or during the 6th century, Athens became the first city-state in ancient Greece to renounce education that was oriented toward the future duties of soldiers.
Benefits of Education to Society and Individuality
Table Perhaps the most important function of education is socialization. If children need to learn the norms, values, and skills they need to function in society, then education is a primary vehicle for such learning. In the United States, these norms and values include respect for authority, patriotism remember the Pledge of Allegiance? Regarding these last two values, American students from an early age compete as individuals over grades and other rewards. A second function of education is social integration.
For a society to work, functionalists say, people must subscribe to a common set of beliefs and values. As we saw, the development of such common views was a goal of the system of free, compulsory education that developed in the 19th century. Thousands of immigrant children in the United States today are learning English, U. Such integration is a major goal of the English-only movement, whose advocates say that only English should be used to teach children whose native tongue is Spanish, Vietnamese, or whatever other language their parents speak at home.
A third function of education is social placement. Beginning in grade school, students are identified by teachers and other school officials either as bright and motivated or as less bright and even educationally challenged. Depending on how they are identified, children are taught at the level that is thought to suit them best. In this way they are prepared in the most appropriate way possible for their later station in life.
Whether this process works as well as it should is an important issue, and we explore it further when we discuss school tracking shortly. Social and cultural innovation is a fourth function of education. Our scientists cannot make important scientific discoveries and our artists and thinkers cannot come up with great works of art, poetry, and prose unless they have first been educated in the many subjects they need to know for their chosen path.
Schools ideally perform many important functions in modern society. These include socialization, social integration, social placement, and social and cultural innovation.
Education also involves several latent functions, functions that are by-products of going to school and receiving an education rather than a direct effect of the education itself. One of these is child care. Once a child starts kindergarten and then first grade, for several hours a day the child is taken care of for free. The establishment of peer relationships is another latent function of schooling. Most of us met many of our friends while we were in school at whatever grade level, and some of those friendships endure the rest of our lives.
A final latent function of education is that it keeps millions of high school students out of the full-time labor force. This fact keeps the unemployment rate lower than it would be if they were in the labor force. Conflict theory does not dispute most of the functions just described. One example involves the function of social placement. As most schools track their students starting in grade school, the students thought by their teachers to be bright are placed in the faster tracks especially in reading and arithmetic , while the slower students are placed in the slower tracks; in high school, three common tracks are the college track, vocational track, and general track.
Such tracking does have its advantages; it helps ensure that bright students learn as much as their abilities allow them, and it helps ensure that slower students are not taught over their heads. But, conflict theorists say, tracking also helps perpetuate social inequality by locking students into faster and lower tracks. The latter tend to lose self-esteem and begin to think they have little academic ability and thus do worse in school because they were tracked down. In this way, tracking is thought to be good for those tracked up and bad for those tracked down.
Conflict theorists thus say that tracking perpetuates social inequality based on social class and race and ethnicity Ansalone, ; Oakes, Social inequality is also perpetuated through the widespread use of standardized tests.
Critics say these tests continue to be culturally biased, as they include questions whose answers are most likely to be known by white, middle-class students, whose backgrounds have afforded them various experiences that help them answer the questions.
As we will see, schools in the United States also differ mightily in their resources, learning conditions, and other aspects, all of which affect how much students can learn in them.
Simply put, schools are unequal, and their very inequality helps perpetuate inequality in the larger society.
Children going to the worst schools in urban areas face many more obstacles to their learning than those going to well-funded schools in suburban areas. Their lack of learning helps ensure they remain trapped in poverty and its related problems. Although no one plots this behind closed doors, our schoolchildren learn patriotic values and respect for authority from the books they read and from various classroom activities.
Symbolic interactionist studies of education examine social interaction in the classroom, on the playground, and in other school venues. These studies help us understand what happens in the schools themselves, but they also help us understand how what occurs in school is relevant for the larger society.
When teachers think students are smart, they tend to spend more time with them, to call on them, and to praise them when they give the right answer. But when teachers think students are less bright, they tend to spend less time with them and act in a way that leads the students to learn less.
One of the first studies to find this example of a self-fulfilling prophecy was conducted by Robert Rosenthal and Lenore Jacobson They tested a group of students at the beginning of the school year and told their teachers which students were bright and which were not. They tested the students again at the end of the school year; not surprisingly the bright students had learned more during the year than the less bright ones.
But it turned out that the researchers had randomly decided which students would be designated bright and less bright. To the extent this type of self-fulfilling prophecy occurs, it helps us understand why tracking is bad for the students tracked down. When teachers expect little of their students, their students tend to learn less. Other research focuses on how teachers treat girls and boys. Teachers did not do this consciously, but their behavior nonetheless sent an implicit message to girls that math and science are not for girls and that they are not suited to do well in these subjects.

These include a socialization, b social integration, c social placement, and d social and cultural innovation. Latent functions include child care, the establishment of peer relationships, and lowering unemployment by keeping high school students out of the full-time labor force.
Symbolic interactionism This perspective focuses on social interaction in the classroom, on the playground, and in other school venues. Figure Education and Inequality Conflict theory does not dispute most of the functions just described.
Symbolic Interactionism and School Behavior Symbolic interactionist studies of education examine social interaction in the classroom, on the playground, and in other school venues. Key Takeaways According to the functional perspective, education helps socialize children and prepare them for their eventual entrance into the larger society as adults. The conflict perspective emphasizes that education reinforces inequality in the larger society.
The symbolic interactionist perspective focuses on social interaction in the classroom, on school playgrounds, and at other school-related venues.

Education, Society and Curriculum
The sociology of education is the study of how public institutions and individual experiences affect education and its outcomes. It is mostly concerned with the public schooling systems of modern industrial societies, including the expansion of higher , further , adult , and continuing education. Education is seen as a fundamentally optimistic human endeavour characterised by aspirations for progress and betterment. Social interactions between people through education is always causing further development no matter what age they are. It is also perceived as one of the best means of achieving greater social equality. Few would argue that any education system accomplishes this goal perfectly. Some take a particularly critical view, arguing that the education system is designed with the intention of causing the social reproduction of inequality.
This edited book represents a sliver, albeit a substantial one, of the scholarship on the science of learning and its application in educational settings. Most of the work described in this book is based on theory and research in cognitive psychology. Although much, but not all, of what is presented is focused on learning in college and university settings, teachers of all academic levels may find the recommendations made by chapter authors of service. Authors wrote their chapters with nonexperts as the target audience — teachers who may have little or no background in science of learning, research-based approaches to teaching and learning, or even general principles of psychological science. The book is organized in three sections.
Don't have an account? Society and the schools are inextricably linked. The schools reflect society, and society reflects the schools. That linkage contains the dynamics for improving the lot of arts education. Arts education is not only part and parcel of those schools in which it is offered but also of the society that gave it birth. In interacting with society, one alters its culture and, in the process, changes destiny. Schools are one of the mainstays of the culture.

И повернулся к офицеру. - Вы уверены, что в коробке все его вещи. - Да, конечно, - подтвердил лейтенант.
Пытаясь подняться на ноги, Стратмор в ужасе смотрел на предмет, зажатый в его пальцах: это была рука Чатрукьяна, обломившаяся в локтевом суставе. Наверху Сьюзан ждала возвращения коммандера, сидя на диване в Третьем узле словно парализованная. Она не могла понять, что задержало его так надолго. У ее ног лежало тело Хейла. Прошло еще несколько минут.

- И что же ты ответила. Она ткнула его в ногу носком туфли. - Я сказала нет! - И, выдержав паузу, добавила: - И до вчерашней ночи это была правда. В глазах Сьюзан Дэвид был самим совершенством - насколько вообще такое. Одно только ее беспокоило: всякий раз, когда они куда-то ходили, он решительно противился тому, чтобы она сама платила за. Сьюзан не могла с этим смириться, видя, как он выкладывает за их обед свою дневную заработную плату, но спорить с ним было бесполезно. Она в конце концов перестала протестовать, но это продолжало ее беспокоить.
Сквозь строй дважды отверг этот файл. Линейная мутация. И все-таки он пошел в обход. Интересно, о чем он. У Бринкерхоффа подогнулись колени. Он не мог понять, почему Мидж всегда права.
То, что он увидел, невозможно было себе представить. Стеклянный купол словно наполнился то и дело вспыхивающими огнями и бурлящими клубами пара. Бринкерхофф стоял точно завороженный и, не в силах унять дрожь, стукался лбом о стекло. Затем, охваченный паникой, помчался к двери. - Директор.
Да, он сумел прочитать эти слова, и их смысл был предельно ясен. Прочитав их, Беккер прокрутил в памяти все события последних двенадцати часов. Комната в отеле Альфонсо XIII.
