"Thoroughly revised, A Sociological Approach to Education is a study of American community life as it hears upon all aspects of school practices and public relations. The text applies modern sociological and anthropological knowledge and techniques to the everyday problems of schools at all levels and considers school problems the problems of our society as it seeks to reintegrate its mode of life around democratic values--the problems of human relations, economic well-being, civil rights, social services, and related issues. Topics are considered within the broad framework of community life in hamlets, towns, cities, and great metropolitan areas on the basis of problem solving via cooperative action, emphasis being on group study-action methods for various school and school-community situations. Crystallized from an abundance of factual material, A Sociological Approach to Education is a conception of education as a joint school and community function, with the school taking the initiative in conducting community studies and organizing cooperative community action"--Jacket.
