Chapter 14A Outline  EDUCATION­ social institution that guides a societies transmission of knowledge  Schooling­ Formal instruction under the direction of specially trained teachers Different nations: India­ working in factories to support families instead of going to school (63% of  children actually go through school) Japan­ feel pride in going to school and graduating. Teach kids about family matters,  traditions and mthe life lessons. Then learthschool materials when they are old and it is  very rigorous (7  in the world for math, 4  is science) United States­ one of the first to make education mandatory. Practice learning is how  we learn. We are a high income country and a democracy which effects how we learn.  Functions of Schooling (structural functionalism) 1. Socialization­ it is in the schools where we are first introduced to social interaction,  besides the family 2. Cultural Innovation­ it is in the school where we first begin to research and invent  things 3. Social integration­ becoming one to communicate with people  4. Social Placement­ what grade you are in, what group you fit into, what you are good  at 5. Latent Functions­ functions you do not expect to see  Schooling and Social Interaction (symbolic interaction)- self-fulfilling prophecy. People let stereotypes effect them even though they should not  Schooling and Social Inequality (conflict theory)- we use schooling for social control, standardized testing is not fair, tracking students, inequality among schools  Higher education- college. Community colleges have increased over the years because of the cheaper costs and the easier classes  Problems in Schools 1. Discipline and Violence- bullying, guns/schools shootings, drugs, alcohol 2. Student Passivity- not paying attention, getting bored and ignoring the teacher 3. Dropping Out- Hispanics have a high drop out rate because language is hard to learn and many need to help make money for their family 4. Academic Standards- standards have declined and students aren’t capable over doing things that they are expected to know by that age or level 5. Grade Inflation- teachers can curve the grades and make it easier for students  School choice 1. Home schooling- half of the children are being taught at home now for safety, religion, and some for standardized testing purposes 2. Schooling with disabilities- training professionals to deal with deaf or blind kids. Not many exists 3. Adult education- adults going back to college. The baby boomers are going back to college to get different degrees or a second degree 4. Teacher shortage- less people want to teach especially in intercity schools because of violence and blacked out in the middle of the country .
