These essays bring together a range of Howard Becker's work on education and educational institutions. They provide conceptual analyses of schools and higher education institutions, a discussion of ethnographic work in education and examples of empirical studies on teachers and pupils. Howard Becker writes on such topics as: schools, teachers, pupils, teacher-pupil interaction, assessment and testing. The book includes an introduction to a range of concepts in the symbolic interactionist tradition including: career, commitment; situational adjustment; and socialization. Ethnographic methods are discussed and there are several examples of the ways in which in-depth interview data can be used in educational studies.
