Social Contexts Enabling Educational Upward Mobility



Educational upward mobility is a phenomenon of social change. It is embedded in, and initiated by, changing social structures, such as modernization. Furthermore, it is itself a social change because individuals leave their original milieux and enter new ones. The way they raise and educate their children differs from the way they, as socially mobile people, were raised and educated; their work and lifestyles differ from those of their parents, siblings, neighbors, friends, and classmates. This chapter highlights social change by pinpointing what enabled it: when and where something new started in the life histories of my interviewees.
