Posh schools ‘fill top roles’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

BOYS from lead­ing pri­vate schools are 94 times more likely to fill so­ci­ety’s top po­si­tions, a study shows.

The in­flu­ence of nine fee- pay­ing school s , in­clud­ing Eton, Har­row and Rugby, has less­ened but there are still clear ad­van­tages for its pupils.

Re­searchers at the LSE checked 120,000 en­tries in Who’s Who.

Dr Sam Fried­man said: “We are told ev­ery­one has the same op­por­tu­ni­ties. This puts in con­text how far away from equal­ity of op­por­tu­nity we re­ally are.”
