Abstract

This article proceeds by highlighting the key organizing questions that animate the variety of anthropological approaches to education, past and present. With a focus on U.S. contributions to the field of anthropology of education, the article also acknowledges the contributions of other national traditions. With its early roots in studies of cultural transmission and 'culture and personality,' the field has grown to incorporate questions about cultural continuity and change, schools and inequality, and the education of racially minoritized groups. A wide range of interdisciplinary dialogues and advocacy efforts for social justice now characterize anthropological approaches to education.
