Additional Information: This is an article that compares the determinants of private school choice in the UK and Australia using longitudinal survey data. We find that despite private school attendance being much higher in Australia, the determinants of attendance are very similar. One striking feature of the research is that there is strong inter-generational factors at play. Children whose parents attended a private school are significantly more likely to attend a private school which suggests that private schooling is one important way in which inter-generational immobility is perpetuated. This article has been very influential in Australia where public funding of private education is currently under review and the UK findings have provided an interesting new dimension to some of the factors driving inter-generational immobility in the UK.
