I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need support to help me learn.
Before participating in this discussion, please make sure that you have read Ch 16, particularly the small box on the educational system in Finland, and the article “Savage Inequalities” by Jonathon Kozol (an excerpt from his groundbreaking book).
1. What were some of the differences in the schools that Jonathon Kozol observed in his article “Savage Inequalities?” Based on what Kozol found, is education a great equalizer, or does it actually work to reproduce inequality? Provide evidence for your claim.
2. What lessons might Finland’s system of education have to offer the United States?
