Abstract

One of the distinctive features of schooling in England and Whales had been its stratified nature: parents may pay to send their children to "public" (i.e. private) schools, or use state-provided schooling which in turn has been divided in the past into areas where schools select by an ability test and those areas without selection by ability. Using a rich and detailed longitudinal dataset for England and Whales which contains disaggregated school quality information and peer group information we investigate the relationship between earnings at age 33 and earlier schooling during a period when school areas were changing from selective to non-selective education.
