dc.description.abstract In this paper, I will look at the following four things; crisis in American schools, expectations and demands of schools, the role of schools, and alternative options for schools. There is a perceived crisis in American schools. This section will examine where this fear of crisis comes from. Expectations and demands of schools is an explanation of the varied roles schools have become expected to perform. The role of schools is stratifying students to fit and accept their place in the social stratification Iadder of society. Alternative options gives alternative structures for schooling. Education is more than attending school.
