Schooling, Ideology and the Curriculum, Hardback Book

Schooling, Ideology and the Curriculum Hardback

Edited by Len Barton, Roland Meighan, Stephen A. Walker

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Education series


Although the different contributions to this book range over a wide spectrum of substantive issues, they share a common interest.

This is a concern to explore the ways in which notions of the relations between theory and practice, between belief and action, can be used to develop three kinds of sensitivity in the sociology of education.

A sensitivity towards how school systems are created, maintained and made to function; towards developing a more refined, critical and constructive awareness of the reliability and validity of descriptions, analyses and explanations offered in this field of study; and a sensitivity towards the ways in which changes take place within the education system and how the insights and realisations generated in the discipline might be used to control such occurrences.
