 According to the functionalist perspective, what would happen to society if one of its institutions - say, the education system - were to break down?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The functionalist perspective says all parts of society are interrelated and dependent on each other. So for instance, if the education system failed it would cause failures of other systems in that society until the other systems adapt or change order.

In short your answer would be- the failure of one institution would cause the failure of other institutions until the others adapted.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. here is a good web page for this topic. http://sociology.about.com/od/Sociological-Theory/a/Functionalist-Theory.htm
