In this article we are interested in establishing whether there is a causal link between educational inequality and social cohesion. This is a particularly pertinent question in terms of the sequencing of the relationship between educational inequality and social cohesion.
We make claims for causality through integrating datasets which show changes in variables (educational inequality, income inequality, economic prosperity and â€˜social cohesionâ€™ outcomes) over time. By using time-series analysis, or by using other techniques (such as lagged regression), we may come to some conclusions concerning the over-time relationships between education (and other) inequalities and indicators of social cohesion.
Rather than considering social cohesion as a single variable, we are able to use preexisting datasets to examine changes in various indicators of cohesion. These are political outcomes (rights and unrest), social trust, crime and xenophobia. We find that there are particularly strong (but non-linear) associations between educational inequality, rights and unrest. In addition, we find some evidence that there may be a relationship between educational inequalities, social trust and at least one form of crime.
In the conclusion to this chapter, we discuss implications of these findings for education
systems and equalities.
