Children of the post-industrial society must achieve financial status by their own efforts sustained from early periods life and are supposed to be equipped with various qualities, both in terms of formal and informal education and extracurricular and leisure activities. Contemporary children almost inherently know how to use the devices of information technology, and through these devices, they encounter ideas, languages, etc. that are different from the ones immediately experienced within their social frame. Consequently, students themselves demand new inclusive teaching practices that expose them to global cultures. Sociological Perspectives on Educating Children in Contemporary Society is a collection of innovative research on the methods and applications of how culture influences the way children are educated. While highlighting topics including global economics, multicultural teaching, and education differentiation, this book is ideally designed for teachers, sociologists, school administrators, curriculum designers, course developers, academics, researchers, and students seeking current research on the interrelationship between children, education, and society.
