Education - Still a Social Leveller?

Education has always been viewed as the most effective catalyst for social mobility by equalising opportunities. This, especially when education is interfaced with meritocracy. However, this assumption is increasingly being questioned. There is growing concern that education – in its current form – is, inadvertently, contributing to social stratification, even as it helps social mobility. The argument is that it gives a distinct advantage to the privileged in society, creating an upward and downward spiral. How can we rethink and remodel education so that it remains an effective social leveller?
