Social origin influences educational attainment as much as diploma and professional integration…

The investigation reveals that at the end of the 3rd year, they are 84% children of executives to choose the general route against only 41% in children of working families. Another observation, only 5% of children of executives do not obtain the Baccalaureate, against 33% of children from working families. Concerning long higher education diplomas (Bac+5 and above), 55% of children of executives are holders of it, against only 11% of children from working families.

In fact, the social inequalities impact on young people from modest origins is observed from the first years of school and continues throughout the school career. Young people from modest backgroundsoften less qualified, meet more difficulties at the start of their career. Alone 26% young people from working families quickly access a job on permanent contractagainst 39% children of executives. At level of equivalent diplomawe can observe a reduction in the differences, the employment rate and the types of contracts being less determined by social origin, although young people from the most modest backgrounds remain slightly disadvantaged.

Orientation fairs not to be missed!
From September to June, Studyrama organizes Higher Studies fairs throughout France! This is the opportunity to discover hundreds of training courses from bac to bac+5, to talk with the educational leaders to ask them all your questions! You will also be able to attend numerous conferences around themes related to orientation: Parcoursup, professions, sectors, career opportunities, etc.

…and salaries

Furthermore, the social reproduction is always visible in access to executive positions and in remuneration. 78% of Bac+5 graduates whose parents are executives become executives themselves, compared to only 60% children from working families.

Another observation, three years after leaving studies, the median salary children of executives is €2,400 net per monthagainst €2,100 for young people from working families. These results demonstrate that with an equivalent diploma and field of training, a person from a family of executives will still have twice as likely to be an executive than someone from a working-class family.
