Peter Saunders, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Sussex, examines the political circumstances in which the social mobility debate is now being played out in the UK and identifies four specific 'Social Mobility Myths": The myth that Britain is 'a closed shop society' in which life chances are heavily shaped by the class you are born into; The myth that social mobility, already limited, is now getting worse; The myth that differences of ability between individuals either do not exist, or are irrelevant in explaining differential rates of success; The myth that governments can increase mobility via top-down social re-engineering within the education system and greater income redistribution. In Social Mobility Myths, Saunders investigates the link between intelligence and social class using empirical sociological models. He argues that by ignoring intelligence, current thinking is in danger of spawning policies that will not work, and which might even make things worse.
