This is the second from last part of the multi-part episode on The Anthropology of Childhood by David Lancy.

This part concerns school. It answers questions such as:

  • What are parents' attitudes to school when exposed to it for the first time?
  • How do children from traditional pre-state societies fare when schools are introduced to their communities?
  • What has the experience of schooling been like in most times and places in the world?
  • How do parents from different societies prepare (or not) children for school?

Enjoy the episode.
