  • Chubb and Moes - 1990, perspective on education (NEW RIGHT)
    • In order to best improve the standards of schools, marketisation of schools is vital
      • Schools should become more influenced by local authorities (Parents + students)
    • State education is a failure as it fails to produce pupils with the skills needed for the economy
    • That education has dis-advantaged lower classes and failed to create equal oppurtunity
    • That education is useful for society (similar to functionalism)
      • This is because school provides the training of the workforce, so unemployment is inescapeable
    • They argue that with higher consumerisation of schools, it allows the needs of parents to be better fufilled
      • Which explains why private schools perform better
