Social mobility myths by Peter Saunders ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a meritocratic society, people's achievements should reflect their own efforts and talents - if you are reasonably bright and motivated there should be little stopping you from succeeding in life. In Social Mobility Myths, Peter Saunders, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Sussex, sets out to convince the political class that much of what they believe (or say they believe) about social mobility in this country is either false or more complicated than they think. According to Saunders, modern Britain is a much more open and meritocratic society than most of us realise and talent and motivation are the key drivers of success and achievement. Saunders examines the political circumstances in which the social mobility debate is now being played out and identifies four specific Social Mobility Myths: The myth that Britain is a closed shop society in which life chances are heavily shaped by the class you are born into; The myth that social mobility, already limited, is now getting worse; The myth that differences of ability between individuals either do not exist, or are irrelevant in explaining differential rates of success; The myth that governments can increase mobility via top-down social re-engineering within the education system and greater income redistribution. According to Saunders, most politicians across all parties accept these myths
