According to the recent report from the Social Mobility Commission, young people are “highly skeptical about advancement [in terms of social mobility] being a reality”.

Some of the key findings in the report include:

  • 40% of people think it is harder for the disadvantaged to catch up
  • 75% of people believe that there are large gaps between social classes

This article could be used within the Social Stratification unit, and within the Education unit.
