Abstract

This paper reanalyses data from four nationally representative sample surveys, conducted in 1949, 1972, 1983 and 1987, to explore trends in class inequalities in education. Log-linear models are used to test whether the relationship between father's class and respondent's education varies significantly by birth cohort. The conclusion is that the various educational reforms that have been attempted over the past 50 years in Britain have had little impact on class inequalities in education.
