We are all Libertarians now? Class Divisions in Education. Nielsen Book Data Publisher's Summary Modern state education was essentially formed around the needs and interests of the middle class.

Class Strategies and the Education Market: The Middle Classes and Social Advantage
Class Strategies and the Education Market examines the ways in which the middle classes maintain and improve their social advantages in and through education. Drawing on an extensive series of interviews with parents and children, this book identifies key moments of decision making in the construction of the educational trajectories of middle class children.
Ball organises his analysis around the key concepts of social closure, social capital, values and principles and risk, while bringing a broad range of up-to date sociological theory to bear upon his subject. From this thorough analysis, valuable and thought-provoking insights into the assiduous care and considerable effort and expenditure which goes into ensuring the educational success of the middle class child, emerge.
