item A
Social class differences in achievement can be seen at all levels of the education system, from
pupils’ performance in primary school to the likelihood of their going to university. Many sociologists
believe differences in pupils’ home backgrounds are the main cause of these class differences in
achievement. For example, better-off middle-class parents may be more likely to adopt parenting
practices that encourage intellectual development and to involve themselves more in their children’s
schooling.
However, other sociologists see factors within schools as more important. Some sociologists also
argue that home background and school factors are often interlinked.


question
Applying material from Item A and your knowledge, evaluate the view that social
class differences in educational achievement are mainly caused by differences in
pupils’ home backgrounds.

Aha I don’t take sociology yet but I’m interested in the question. Yes I do believe performance from an early age does show how they will perform in the future primary is the foundation. Upper class people will probably go to private schools with a lot better teaching methods and curriculum. But middle class students can also perform good as private school isn’t for everyone and some can’t afford it.
