A macro-level sociologist seeks to analyze the larger social patterns. In regard to this, a macro-level sociologist views schooling as an aspect that interacts with other aspects to contribute to the effective functioning of the society. Education is provided by the government to the children to increase literacy, and in return, the parents pay taxes for the government to run its programs. In other words, the parents depend on the school to enlighten their children and secure good jobs in the future for them to raise and support their own families. In the process, the children become law-abiding citizens, paying taxes to support the government in running its programs. Effective interaction in these aspects renders the society to have order, stability, and productivity.
