3. Social Class
SOCIAL CLASS STRATIFICATION our system of social stratification is much more fluid that is, we experience a good deal of social mobility - people,
The grouping of people together and according them status within society according to the groups they belong to, is as old as society itself. Racial grouping is one way that societies have done this e.g. the American South before the US civil war. Religion is another - parts of Northern Ireland until the 1960s. One common way is through the "caste" system to be found in India. Here, social differentiation is stressed by the "caste" that each individual is born into e.g. the "Brahmin" caste is the top caste and the "untouchables" are the bottom caste. Caste membership in this life is the result of "good" or "bad" conduct in the previous life.
In Medieval Britain, the "Feudal System" of land ownership meant that the "nobility" of land owners, with its sense of family tradition, privilege and knightly conduct became the dominant ruling group.
Clearly, in most modern industrial societies, including Britain, our system of social stratification is much more fluid - that is, we experience a good deal of

particular attention t the different dimensions of social stratification. to position are part of the social order and give rise to stratification.
Organizational Perspectives on Stratification Organizations impinge on career outcomes in two important ways:
1) The division of labor among jobs and organizations generates a distribution of opportunities and rewards that often antedates the hiring of people to fill those jobs.
2) Organization procedures for matching workers to jobs affect the distribution of rewards and opportunities within and across firms and thus influence the likelihood of career success Why Some Firms Pay and Promote More than Others
- ''Older approaches'': human capital, status attainment
-more recent approach: internal labor markets INTERNAL LABOR MARKET: Competing Interpretations
1) Labor economists emphasize technical determinants: technological progress increases workers' skill monopoly in the firm and that internal advancement opportunities are required so that senior workers will train junior personnel
2) Williamson emphasizes informational constraints that favor internal labor promotion hierarchies over perfectly competitive labor market.
3) Neo-Marxists regarded internal labor markets as an effort by capitalists to control a volatile work force.

Ethnographic Research Project Email Prof. Wood Social stratification lies at the core of society and of the discipline of sociology. Social inequality is a fundamental aspect of virtually all social processes, and a person's position in the stratification system is the most consistent predictor of his or her behavior, attitudes, and life chances. Social stratification links almost all aspects of society together, and therefore understanding what is happening to social stratification helps us understand a wide range of other changes in society. This course focuses on one type of stratification in particular: social class. It does so in the belief that in American society we have become conditioned to see other forms of inequality (race, gender, age) much more readily than class stratification, even when apparent differences between racial, gender or age groups may in fact be explained by their link to social class. Social class is by no means the only determinant of social life and life chances, but it is a goal of this course to "see" class and its significance where before it may have been invisible. Prerequisite: It is strongly recommended that students have taken, or be taking concurrently, Methods and Techniques of Social Research.

Education, then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is a great equalizer

Horace Mann, 1848 Civilization is a race between education and catastrophe.
H.G. Wells (1866-1946) In large states public education will always be mediocre,
for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad.
With cognitive labor rapidly supplanting physical labor, the theme of the times seems to be that if Americans are to successfully compete in the new economic world system then the quality and quantity of their education must be increased. Education is seen to be the great panacea by which inequality and poverty can be reduced, a national investment in human capital now that people costs comprise about two-thirds of the cost of any product (see causal models of education's role in status attainment ). In addition, education has been viewed as the mechanism by which immigrants are "Americanized"the very cauldron of the American "melting pot." Further, with the proliferation of McJobs in the service sector wherein work is "dumbed down," with the increasing numbers of over-educated and underemployed individuals in the labor force, and with
