The ASA section on Sociology of Education supports a community of scholars who conduct research on many diverse features of contemporary education. Sociologists of education examine the ways in which formal schooling influences individuals and the ways society affects educational institutions. A central concern within this research tradition is the process by which educational systems contribute to or alleviate social inequality in broader society.
