Howdy! In this week’s lecture, Dr. Mackin went over two broad sociological explanations of stratification in society today. These two explanations are basically the same but in different words I believe. Same message, different wording. “Between schools” basically suggest that the stratification and economic gap starts with everything outside of the classroom such as wealth, families, neighborhoods…etc. According to Dr. Mackin, this is the popular approach in the sociological world. The other approach is the “within schools” approach.
