FDED 211 - The School and Society


Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
The school is a societal institution created specifically for the purpose of education. The school is both shaped by societal factors and, in turn, has impact upon the society. Contemporary schools for children and adolescents, as well as institutions of higher education for adults in the United States, are impacted by the political and governmental system of the country; the economy; patterns of social stratification; the multicultural diversity within the population. The school also interacts with other societal institutions concerned with education: museums, libraries, religious institutions, health care institutions, the work place in the community, as well as the family.
