Parsons' Theory of Education


Secondary Socialisation

- Education is the bridge between the home and society and is necessary to maintain the value consensus.

- Particularistic to universal values.

- Allows status to be achieved rather than ascribed.

- Teaches collectivism rather than individualism.

How does Education Achieve This?

- Hidden or Informal Curriculum.

- Norms and values of schools.

- Assessments.
