Essay on sociological theories and education
(2000 words) -For what reasons do Michel Foucault present mass education as a means of social control? Is anything about his analyses accurate, or not accurate?
The essay should have: Theory of society (what is society according to Foucault, what purpose does society services, and whose interests?);
– How does education fit into the society, how does it promote or fail to promote, those interests/ society’s overall aim;
-Some critical comments concerning whether the theory holds gaps or disputable assumptions;
-Other sociology theorists like Marx, Leo Strauss, Immanuel Kant, and the enlightenment can be brought up if there is a possible comparison or deniability. (not necessary)
