A brief video I put together to help revise the Functionalist, Marxist and New Right Perspectives on Education – basically just some key points and evaluations for each of these sociological theories.
Functionalism – Social solidarity, skills for work, bridge between home and society, role allocation and meritocracy
Marxism – The reproduction and legitimation of class inequality and the correspondence principle
The New Right – Marketisation, league tables, the National Curriculum and New Vocationalism
The slide show goes through each perspective three times – each repeat has less information. The idea is that you can test yourself as you go….. It’s deliberately designed to be ‘no frills’ btw!
Functionalist, Marxist and New Right Perspectives on Education: Test Yourself…
Once you’ve reviewed the above video you might like to test yourself with the Quizlet below…!
This material has been written specifically for A-level sociology students revising for the A-level sociology AQA exam, the education topic which is part of Paper 1 (SCLY1)
