The Ninth Edition of Society and Education continues its tradition of incorporating forward-looking material. Reflecting both recent developments and long-range trends involving the relationships between education and other social institutions, it continues to provide a balanced treatment of controversial issues - in sufficient depth to help students understand complicated and important topics to current and future teachers and administrators. While systematically including historical background material on major topics involving schools in the social order, it simultaneously emphasizes contemporary developments and is very up-to-date with regard to research, legislation, theoretical perspectives, and other matters. Every chapter has been revised to include new material and updated information. Topics that receive expanded treatment include immigration, multicultural education, evolution of the inner city, rural schools, and movement toward systematic reform and national standards. Students will appreciate the easy availability of unobtrusive references and citations, extensive quotes from source materials, and suggested activities and readings at the end of each chapter. For both the students and the instructor, Society and Education makes it feasible to pursue a particular topic in as much detail and depth as may be suitable for a specific course or assignment.
