Summary

Ethnography is coming to be much discussed in education. A definition of ethnography is, however, an elusive and complicated question. Anthropologists do not themselves have a unified conception of ethnography, especially of ethnography in relation to the study of institutions of our own society, such as education. One difficulty with the notion of ethnography is that it may seem to be a residual category, associated with the study of people not ourselves and with the use of methods other than those of experimental design and quantitative measurement. Educational research has been traditionally dominated by these quantitative and experimental conceptions of research. Ethnography, which involves participation and observation, and which is systematic, comprehensive and topic oriented, could provide the opportunity for mutual relation of interaction between ethnographers and sponsors of educational research. With systematic and comprehensive information about the community to be studied in an educational context, ethnographers will be able to test hypotheses in the field of educational research.
