Cultural Capital: 11+ Tests
Rather than a news article, I found this interesting question posed to the column ‘Private Lives’ in The Guardian focusing on a reader’s dilemma about whether they should pay for additional tutoring sessions for their grandson.
Aside from linking generally to the Education topic, this query (and subsequent reader responses) could provoke an interesting debate about whether students should receive additional support for tests like the 11+. The article links to issues of social class, social mobility and, in particular cultural capital, where wealthier families are often seen as more likely to be able to support their children at school with additional tutoring than poorer families.
