Value Consensus (Education)

Value consensus is a fundamental functionalist concept. For sociologists like Durkheim, a society functions well when there is broad agreement about values and this is achieved through socialisation (including education). The absence of value consensus is anomie: a state of normlessness. This concept is closely related to social cohesion and social solidarity.
