Social Mobility

I read Ruth Kelly in the Guardian a week ago, mending fences with the faithful in her Fabian lecture. She noted that since the 1960s social mobility had reduced in Britain, and that what your parents did for a living is more important now than it was then. She didn't seem to notice that it was then that the comprehensive scheme began.

I know my children, at State comprehensives, are getting a much worse education than I got at State grammar.

Snafu at Not Proud Of Britain has noticed, too.
