From the cover: “Here is a comprehensive approach to the study of education and society that many student teachers and sociologists will welcome. The first section provides a general grounding in sociology, indicating the relationship between education and three institutions: the family, the social class system, and the economy. The final section covers a neglected part of the field, the sociology of teaching. The position of the teacher as a member of a profession is examined; the teacher is seen as the centre of a web of forces acting on him from both outside and inside the school.”
