Item A
Consensus theorists claim that education is a form of socialisation and schools are important for the transmission of skills and allocation of roles in life.
Education conditions people in society to generate a cohesive, collective conscience through secondary socialisation.
It is worth noting that Durkheim was a socialist and was concerned about equality of opportunity and educational reform.

Conflict theorists on the other hand see the purpose of education as maintaining social inequality as it serves to maintain a capitalist society.
Conflict theorists examine the same functions of education as functionalists.

Functionalists see education as a beneficial contribution to an ordered society; however, conflict theorists agree that the educational system practises sorting, but they disagree about how it enacts sorting.

Using information from item A and elsewhere, assess the view that the education system serves to maintain a capitalist society(30 marks)
