Hi, I'm currently revising for my AS exam, and I'm not too sure what Parsons meant by:

"Parsons saw schooling as a bridge between the particularistic values and ascribed status of the family, and the universalistic values and achieved status of contemporary societies."

Help with understanding would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Basically in a family, we are judged by particularistic values e.g treated differently because we are a certain gender, age etc and also have ascribed status - first born treated differently from second born etc.
In school this isn't the case, we are treated the same no matter how old we are (a person born in September will be treated the same way as someone born in July), no matter what class, ethnicity or gender (marxists/feminists/critical race theorists would disagree). This is a lot more reflective of how society works and how the workforce works e.g someone who is 50 will be treated same way as a 30 year old (universalistic standards) and we achieve status by being good at our job rather than being born into a position.
