Abstract

The article focuses on the social aspects of education, questioning the trends self-perpetuation of socioeconomic class rather than the declared equalizing philosophy of the U.S. system. Particular attention is given to the school tracking paradigm, where students are isolated and taught separate subjects for diverse vocational outcomes. An overview of attitudes held by school principals on the merits and dysfunctions of school tracking is provided, highlighting the differences in perspective from principals of different school systems.
