Is there a blue-collar barrier in higher education?

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This indicator examines the occupational status (white collar or blue collar) and the educational status of tertiary students’ fathers in some European countries. Opening access to higher education is not only a matter of equity but also a way to broaden the pool of candidates for high-skilled jobs and to increase countries’ overall competitiveness. In many countries, however, far fewer young people from blue-collar backgrounds study in higher education.
