EDUCATION IS ABOUT SOCIALIZATION.

The details, and the scholarly elaboration, are at Marginal Revolution.
We develop, test and find support for a theory of class cultural norms: these preferences are partly traceable to socialization that occurs on predominately affluent college campuses, especially those with norms of financial gain, and especially among socially embedded students. The economic views of the student’s cohort also matter, in part independently of affluence.
I'm not surprised.  Evolutionary stability beats social construction by six touchdowns.
