Sociology 101 3/31/16 Functionalist (macro theory)  Maintains status quo  Reinforces social or political role  Macro-lens to society  Manifest functions: what should happen/ be taught  Latent functions: what is taught Conflict theory (macro theory)  Two classes: Marx:  Uses socioeconomic roles as keys for success  False generosity: the privileged work to help the oppressed  Banking education: teachers “filling up” students with knowledge; teaches students to be submissive  Schools are teaching students to represent unjust relationships  Hidden curriculum teaches capitalist ideas; such as to compete with each other  Cultural capital: a non financial asset that contributes to success in school and in life  Habitus as your “common sense”: i.e. how we know that the bell signals the end of class; similar to how they would learn to follow certain ideas/ sounds in a factory  ISA: ideological state apparatus o Reinforces through ideas  Class conflict and Marxism Credentialism  Evaluating a person on the basis of educational degrees  Diplomas and degrees are viewed as evidence of ability  Over-education is often the case when people are overqualified for the job at hand  Education gives you a different place in society  I.e. Dr fry example Problems in schools  Many believe that a so called “state of emergency” best characterizes our system of education these days  School discipline o Many believe that schools need to teach discipline because it isn’t addressed within the home setting  Violence in schools o Students and teachers are assaulted o Weapons are brought to school o Society’s problems spill into school  Answer o Adjust attitudes so learning is the focus o Skillful and committed teaching o Firm disciplinary standards enforced o Administrative and parental support The “Apathetic” classroom  A lack of understanding of and interest in the importance of education  Focus on “credits” and “degrees”, not an education  Belief that good grades need not be “earned” o Rather just “rewarded” (as if they have the right to them)  No matter what the class size o Only a handful of students ask pertinent questions  Reasons o Students and teachers don’t care o Instructors come to class with lectures prepared and so not wish to get sidetracked
