Discuss the manifest and latent functions of education? Identify rules or regulations that some educational instittutions may use to encourage students to maintain the status quo and discourage individual creativity, can you also relate? What trends in eduaction are beneficial and which are not? (Is manditaotry testing/STAR doing its job? Is bilingual education working? should students learn a language before graduating?) Consider the high school you attended, do you feel like you received a good education; did it prepare you for college?
