Social mobility myths by Peter Saunders( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They wrongly assume that social mobility in Britain is very limited and that class origins count for much more than personal effort and talent in shaping people s destinies. Furthermore, they commonly express their sense of outrage that a class-ridden, closed society is becoming even more class-ridden and even more closed - thus the scene has been set for yet another bout of ineffective but expensive social engineering aimed at dismantling the imagined inequities of the British class system. In Social Mobility Myths, Saunders investigates the link between intelligence and social class using empirical sociological models. He argues that by ignoring intelligence, current thinking is in danger of spawning policies that will not work, and which might even make things worse. The bottom line is this: we cannot hope to develop good policies if we ignore the key influence on the phenomenon we are hoping to change
