Social reconstruction advocates from the attitude which encourages the people for the reconstruction of the cultural thoughts and values and the social structure in order to solve the social problems with the aim of constructing a better life.Reconstructionist considers the schools as a means for this purpose. They believe that the schools are not only the responsible for the preservation and transmission of the culture but they can create the new social and cultural patterns which incorporate the new and old patterns in a successful combination through the curricula and thereby help the social reconstruction. This research which is carried out by the documentary- analytical method tries to respond to these questions: firstly, what analyses have the reconstructionist in respect to school competency to address the reconstruction and to do this, what programs and constituents they offer? Secondly,in current state of our society,how is the necessity and possibility in using this theory?The results show that the existing educational and social problems in Iran require a redefinition of schools role by using some of the reconstructionist components and, the curricula should be developed and performed such that they can provide the opportunity for cultural changes and ability for problem solving in them by approaching to the realities of social life and providing an opportunity for critical thought in the students.They should also provide a condition for structural changes with the purpose of improvement and reconstruction in the schools and society.
