Perspectives on the Sociology of Education

Edited by Cynthia Levine-Rasky

  • Written by academics from coast to coast, essays range from the theoretical to the empirical, and from substantive concerns influencing students' lives to those involving governance issues.
  • The collection reflects the breadth and depth of modern research into the Canadian sociology of education by examining Canadian issues, policies, and institutions, and by using Canadian data.
  • The various impacts of educational inequalities on black, Aboriginal, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered, and working-class students are considered anew, and, in some cases, for the first time in Canada.
  • Current educational reforms, from British Columbia to the Atlantic coast of Canada, are considered in terms of how they affect teachers, administrators, parents, children, and university students.
  • Each chapter ends with Study Questions, Recommended Readings and Websites, and a Glossary of Terms to better aid students in their understanding of the material.
