Example text

These concerns persisted throughout the nineteenth century leading them to found schools to teach and preserve their morality.  Today, they are the largest, oldest, and most diverse in student population of all the boarding schools, and perhaps the most competitive academically.  Although Round Hill survived but eleven years, it established the precedent for most of the later schools by developing moral character in three ways—rigorous academics, required athletics, and daily devotionals that made religion a central focus of school life.

Given roughly comparable educational attainment, individuals in American society openly compete on the basis of their own attributes for high positions.  Again, one should be open to the possibility that distinct processes operate at the elite level; it may well be that some elements of sponsorhip to elite positions are embedded in a general system of contest mobility.  Entrance to the schools that confer these credentials may well be largely governed by considerations of merit, but since the children of high­status families have had greater opportunity to become meritorious, they disproportionately gain admittance.

As explained below, at the secondary level the focus is on independent college preparatory schools ("prep schools"), not on the much more numerous parochial schools.  Clearly, for two decades this research has dominated social science efforts to understand the connection between educational and occupational attainments.  Particularistic attributes are those which enhance a person's access to certain statuses because of his or her membership in a particular group (Matras, 1975).  Since there are generally no reliable indicators of subsequent job performance anyway, this low­cost way of obtaining information and selecting applicants may be considered rational for a profit­maximizing firm (Taubman and Wales, 1974).
