It should be retitled "The Sociology of the American Education System".

However, I was a bit disappointed that this book covers social and political issues in regards to the American education system. It should be retitled "The Sociology of the American Education System". Another complaint is that the writing style is not very academic-what you might expect from a high school AP course or perhaps a community college course. I really recommend trying another textbook if you want in depth analysis of the sociology of education.

I bought this book hoping to gain some insight into the social nature of education in order to back up some research that I am currently conducting on the Japanese education system. However, I was a bit disappointed that this book covers social and political issues in regards to the American education system. If you're interested in that kind of information, then this might be of use to you, but if you're looking for a book on the sociology of education, then this is not it. It should be retitled "The Sociology of the American Education System". Another complaint is that the writing style is not very academic--what you might expect from a high school AP course or perhaps a community college course. I really recommend trying another textbook if you want in depth analysis of the sociology of education.

This book didn't quite cater to the needs of my Sociology programme at school. I did use it on occasion and found it to be a good alternative. I wouldn't recommend it as your main Sociology reference though.
