Class: Boys and Education

Part of Being A Man

Social class can define the chances of young men and boys, especially how they perform in the classroom. But can being born into an upper class also come with its disadvantages?

What are the challenges that boys from working class backgrounds face in the education system and how do they compare to public schooling, which is rife with bullying and outdated ideas of masculinity?

We take a 360-degree look at the experiences of boys in the education system, both public and private.
