It is all about the middle classes the people who enter education want to be in the middle class.

"Is education fundamentally linked to social class?" - I'm not quite sure what you are asking, I have an inkling mind but can you clarify for me please? Are you asking if education is available dependent upon class or whether attainment is linked to class? Thanks :-)

How well you do is linked very much do the social class you were born into also a lot of the reason people want to do well is just because they want to get a better job be in a different social class.

Hiya KarlP,

The question t the beginning of the thread - "Is education fundamentally linked to social class?" was this your question or are you just replying to it like me? Sorry if it's a bit of daft question but it's not clear on the laptop i'm using and so don't want to reply to a question you did't ask. Ta :-)

Abso-chuffing-lutely unfortunately. The biggest determinant of education attainment is a child’s socio-economic background.
However, not sure about your view on changing social class. I’m from a very working class background and wanted to do well career wise to feel fulfilled, not to change social-class.

Well. The truth if your parents never went to University your less likely to go university yourself.
I am sure there are figures somewhere to back this up.
Add that with the mean salary of people who went to university vs those who didnt.

You may well find your answer.
