SECTION ON SOCIOLOGY OF EDUCATION
As amended: 8/1965, 6/1997, 9/2012
The purpose of the Section on the Sociology of Education is to foster the development of this aspect of sociology and its application through organized meetings, conferences, publication and such other means as are deemed appropriate by the Council of the Section.
The ASA section on Sociology of Education supports a community of scholars who conduct research on many diverse features of contemporary education. Sociologists of education examine the ways in which formal schooling influences individuals and the ways society affects educational institutions. A central concern within this research tradition is the process by which educational systems contribute to or alleviate social inequality in broader society.
