Purpose of Schooling

Thanks to the Council on Anthropology and Education for reminding me of a more global perspective on schooling- as a tool for generational and cultural shifts, sorting and labeling of young people, and economic projects about development and modernization.  I can’t help but see the parallels between “Schooling the World” and “Digital Possibilities” as schooling shapes young people’s orientations to the future and ideas about who they are and what they might be.
