Alumni from Britain’s top public schools 94 times more likely to reach elite position watch

    • Thread Starter

    The alumni of nine leading public schools are 94 times more likely to reach the most powerful elite positions in British society than those who attended any other school, according to a unique historical analysis of Who’s Who led by LSE researchers.
    The study examines the past and present influence of the Clarendon Schools: Charterhouse, Eton, Harrow, Merchant Taylor’s, Rugby, Shrewsbury, St Paul’s, Westminster, and Winchester College. These schools have traditionally educated around 0.15 per cent of all people aged 13 to 18, but still produce nearly 10 per cent of all Who’s Who entrants. http://www.lse.ac.uk/News/Latest-new...lite-positions

    Oxford and Cambridge are like cults, no different to Scientology in the way they operate.
