What is a good education?

by Peter Mandler
  • Key point 1
    Inequality operates throughout an individual’s life, not just through one’s education. Equal education can help address inequality but cannot solve it.
  • Key point 2
    Privileged children use their educational advantages to further intensify their advantages after leaving the education system.
  • Key point 3
    There is no economic reason for society to favour science skills. This bias discourages children who are better at other subjects such as creative arts.
