Chapter 5 describes how class determines educational experience and life choices. Our speakers focus on the barriers to more settled, higher-paid employment opportunities – such as how the narrow test-driven school curriculum sets up some children to ‘fail’; the lack of grants and other resources which prohibit access to higher education and the perception of the greater value of education at private schools and ‘top’ universities.
