Interesting Fact - Class in the UK

A report published by the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission in the UK says that a 'cosy club' of people educated at private schools and Oxbridge still dominates politics, the judiciary and media.

(The report calls for class to be given as much priority as gender and ethnicity in a 'national mission' to break open an elite 'formed on the playing fields of independent schools' and 'finished in Oxbridge’s dreaming spires'.

In his book, The Son Also Rises, Gregory Clark states that your chances of making a success of life are dependent on what your family accomplished 300 years ago. If your family were shopkeepers 200 years ago, the likelihood is you may be, too. I guess I'd better get down the mine.)

!Note - Oxbridge = Oxford / Cambridge university.
