THE LATENT FUNCTIONS OF EDUCATION

The latent functions of education refer to the functions of education, which are not obvious but are implied. Swift (1969) identified some of these functions as follows:-
i. It is a free baby-sitting service, separating children from their parents for regular and reasonably prolonged periods of the day and year.
ii. It provides opportunities for children to become acquainted with a wider and more diverse circle of friends than they would otherwise reach.
iii. It is a useful marriage market because young adults sometimes choose their mates from amongst their educational peers.
iv. It is also a means by which the supply of labour is reduced.
