Hi, need to submit a 1000 words essay on the topic Marxist Theory versus Functionalism.
&nbsp.The resolution on whether to maintain the status quo depends on personal understanding and perspective of the current societal norms and values. In this essay therefore, I will compare and contrast Marxism and Functionalism view of education based on similarities and difference.
According to Functionalism, “The consensus approach”, institutions of learning are probed to uncover their societal responsibilities and roles. They believe that an institution exist in a society for a particular reason. Assumption by the Functionalist is that some societal needs are served by the educational institutions. Functionalist focus on the positive packages educational institutions renders ensuring sustainability of society.
