Professor Andy Green, University of London: Skills inequality in Russia is lower than in other countries.
Education determines people's chances of success in life. Also it is the mechanism for the reproduction of the social stratification of the new generations. The form of the educational system in the country is related with skills distribution in society and the level of inter-generational social mobility. This is an important factor of income distribution of the population, which leads economic inequality. Therefore, the modern debates about educational inequality and policy in this area are important to reduce economic inequality.
