Social snedrekrytering till högre studier - En litteraturöversikt
AbstractThis paper provides an overview of selected literature on the impact of social background on educational opportunity in Sweden. Both a sociological and an economic perspective are applied. It is found that the social stratification in Sweden has decreased compared to other comparable countries and that this probably is due to increased equality outside of the educational sector and increased economic safety. However the pattern of social stratification in higher education, though weaker, persists with few changes. It is also found that the return to education increases with social class and the economic incentives to study at university level are, on the whole, lower for lower classes.
