Jasper sits down with Dr Sam Friedman, Associate Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Commissioner of the government’s Social Mobility Commission to talk about his book, The Class Ceiling: Why it Pays to be Privileged. Sam highlights the extent to which class barriers and advantages still permeates British society, why meritocracy is a myth and why private schools should be abolished, putting his case for what should be done to education afterwards.
