Education and Social Change provides a basic introduction to educational studies, with a viewpoint for decision. This book discusses the increasing number of educational influences at work outside the schools and colleges. Organized into three parts encompassing 10 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the influences affecting the schools as well as affecting the entire life in which the schools have to take on a different meaning. This text then examines the educational institutions and describes how their purposes, structures, and populations are undergoing unprecedented change. Other chapters deal with the transformation of the teaching–learning role itself, with reference to the teachers. This book discusses as well the relevance of all educational sciences. The final chapter briefly examines some of the main questions that need to be asked again because of all the changes in education's purposes and instrumentality. This book is a valuable resource for students and teachers.
