Abstract

Improving quality of education led to the reduction of the social inequality and growth of equal opportunities in many countries. This policy paper examines the issue of intergenerational mobility in Belarus and looks at to what extent the level of parental education impacts on the income of individuals. The results reflect high and significant level of social mobility in the country for all age cohorts. In general, there is a significant growth in the educational level of the younger generation in relation to their parents.
