Summary
This title provides a rigorous, compelling, and balanced examination of the British private school system and the lifetime inequalities it entrenches Britain's private, fee-paying schools are institutions where children from affluent families have their privileges further entrenched through a high-quality, richly-resourced education. There is an irrefutable link between private schools and life's gilded path: private school to top university to top career. 'Engines of Privilege' contends that, in a society that mouths the virtues of equality of opportunity, of fairness and of social cohesion, the educational apartheid separating private schools from our state schools deploys our national educational resources unfairly and inefficiently; blocks social mobility; reproduces privilege down the generations; and underpins a damaging democratic deficit in our society
