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.
