    I think external social and emotional factors can considerably effect a child's ability to do well in their education especially if they're from a low income background because not only are they struggling to have the right essentials for learning but also struggle to convince themselves that university could be worth it as their families often don't push them in that direction. I also think students who are young carers or in care have a considerably harder time trying to get a high quality education compared to their peers.

    Working class people generally aren't really genetically pre-disposed towards dry academic learning anymore than David Cameron is towards cutting it in Leeds as a gas fitter. They all generally think studying is gay anyway, dont try to artificially shoehorn these people in to higher learning its just not in their blood. Boozy nights in the pub, the football and hard physical labour pretty define them and besides they would have to actually wait til after their teens to pop out the first of their illegitimate children so its clearly a non-starter.
