Another way of looking at equality of opportunity is to ask to what extent the life chances of a child are dependent on the education and income of his parents.

Is it just as likely that a child of poor or poorly educated parents gets a good education and rises to the middle class as someone born to middle-class parents with college degrees? The life prospects of an American are more dependent on the income and education of his parents than in almost any other advanced country for which there is data.

According to research from the Brookings Institution, only 58 percent of Americans born into the bottom fifth of income earners move out of that category, and just 6 percent born into the bottom fifth move into the top. Economic mobility in the United States is lower than in most of Europe and lower than in all of Scandinavia.
