SOCIOLOGY OF EDUCATION
- It examines how education functions within broader social structures
- It’s less prominent within education students in general & teacher training specifically
- Education servers the link b/w social origins & destinations
- Sociology: focused on aggregate within an interest in society/community as its focus
- Education: teaching is concerned with individual students & particular learning
environments
- Students from diverse backgrounds become homogenized to a hidden curriculum,
dominant culture & elite goals
- Sorting of students by class, ethnicity & inequality
- Networking of students into professionals or personal relationships
- Schools are socialization agencies that teach kids how to serve others & prepared them
for adult economic roles
- Hidden curriculum can reinforce the lessons of the formal curriculum or it can contradict
the formal curriculum, instructional norms & values aren’t openly acknowledged by
teachers or school officials
- Teacher expectancy effect:
1. Climate: create warmer interactions for those with greater perceived potential
2. Effort: spend more time with those deemed to succeed
3. Response: provide more opportunities, select them more often, speak longer
4. Feedback: offer greater reinforcement & more detailed feedback on work
- Majority of school time is spent on passively being instructed or actively performing
tasks that have no obvious meaning or visible use, trains students to accept relations of
subordination, preparing the majority of kids for a waged life, working for a corporation
that will deploy similar tactics & practices for economic roles
