Education, Inequality and Life Chances. Volume 1 and Volume 2.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
These two volumes bring together writings on technical and scientific problems such as distributional justice, the impact of government policy on equality between generations, and the viability of economic policies. Volume 1 encompasses four areas. Area 1 is composed of background papers including the major policy issues of education, inequality and life chances, inequalities in the distribution of education between countries, sexes, generations and individuals, and inequality in the distribution of personal income. Area 2 covers the distribution of educational opportunity. Area 3 addresses educational policy options and includes papers on strategies for educational equality and distributional impact of methods of educational finance. Papers on social mobility and equality are addressed in the last section. Volume 2 includes two major topics; the impact of education on earnings, and the role of education in the overall framework of equalizing policy instruments. Among the papers from the former topic are income equality and economic development, a case study. Income distribution policy in the United States is one of the issues raised in the latter topics. Conclusions on the issues raised in the seminar are provided. (Author/AM)
