  • Access to Educationby A. Sauvy

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 72.76

    It is difficult for us today to imagine that equal educational opportunity, with which we are so deeply preoccupied, was at one time considered to be if not an evil at least a futile objective, and that those who held such an opinion were completely insincere and even disinterested. For a vertically stratified society equality of education had to be... more...
