Abstract: The work is a theoretically based exposition but predicated on the agitation for a universal education programme. The ideas of Talcott Parsons (I902-I979) are based on the possibility of social order. As a functionalist, his ideas stemmed from the consensus view point demonstrated by adherence to shared values. The paper examines the principles of functionalism where social order is possible only where members of society see the commonness of social values and equally respect same. Generally, sociological studies are concerned with the enshrinement of order. Thus, the paper. agitates' for a universal education programme which‘ can address the very many but similar global social problems.
