CALS 456 - Sociology of Education/Latinos and Education


Unit(s): 4
This course introduces students to some key theoretical and empirical work in the sociology of education and Latinos. Because this is such a large field of research, the course will focus on the question of stratification and how systems of schooling maintain or alleviate inequality among Latino communities. We will examine classical approaches to schooling; schools as organizations; schools and their effects on social mobility; class, race, and gender stratification in achievement and attainment; tracking/ability grouping; theories and empirical work on social and cultural capital; school choice; and cross-national expansion of education. Our readings will cover both qualitative and quantitative studies in the field.

Grading: OPT
Prerequisite(s): CALS 458. Restricted to upper-division students.
