Education, Social Closure, and Social Mobility.
The purpose of this paper is to investigate factors that affect progression to university education across Europe. Findings point to interesting age by gender and age by parental education interactions affecting the entrance to university. It demonstrates the disparity that exists across Europe whereby in some countries progression has been a smooth process for the past few decades while in others widening participation to higher education has only been a recent phenomenon. The findings of this study are discussed with reference to social reproduction theories and have implications for wider European educational policies for enhancing access to university education. In a globalised education market inequalities may be observed within countries but also between countries making the outcomes of policies for offering equal opportunities a complex one.
Social stratification refers to a society's categorization of its people into groups based on socioeconomic factors like wealth , income , race , education , ethnicity , gender , occupation , social status , or derived power social and political. As such, stratification is the relative social position of persons within a social group, category, geographic region, or social unit. In modern Western societies , social stratification is typically defined in terms of three social classes : the upper class , the middle class , and the lower class ; in turn, each class can be subdivided into the upper-stratum, the middle-stratum, and the lower stratum. The categorization of people by social stratum occurs most clearly in complex state-based , polycentric , or feudal societies, the latter being based upon socio-economic relations among classes of nobility and classes of peasants. Historically, whether or not hunter-gatherer , tribal , and band societies can be defined as socially stratified, or if social stratification otherwise began with agriculture and large-scale means of social exchange , remains a debated matter in the social sciences. Generally, the greater the social complexity of a society, the more social stratification exists, by way of social differentiation.
