The writer's job is to review most of the studies of sociology of education published in the past five relating to “Family and Education (Socialization)”, which is extremely vague and ambiguous. Until quite recently, “Family and Education” was one of the subdivisions of “Study of parsonality Development”.
According to the writer's interpretation, this field includes the following:
1. A study of the educational function of family including child-t caring practices and the training of children;
2. A study of dynamic change of the fanctions of family;
3. A study of broken homes and their impacts upon socialization process:
4. A study of generational gaps and conflict;
5. A study of family in terms of social class and rural-urban differences.
Roughly classified into four different categories, they are;
1. Discipline of children
2. Parent-child relationship, roles, and gaps
3. Family and juvenile delinquency.
In each category a few articles or books are reviewed in order to grasp the general trends of the studies. In the field of “Family and Education” studies are not ripe enough to distinguish one from another. Such aspects as socialization of adolescents, courtship, dating and marriage in terms of education need further exploration.
