This sociological inquiry explores the intricate relationship between education and social mobility in India. In a country marked by its diversity and complex social hierarchies, education is viewed as a potent tool for breaking the chains of inequality. However, the interplay of education and social mobility is multifaceted, shaped by factors such as quality of education, social backgrounds, access to higher education, and economic disparities. While education holds the promise of empowerment, challenges such as unequal access, economic barriers, and employment inequalities hinder its transformative potential. Understanding these dynamics is crucial for unlocking education’s true power in fostering a more equitable society.
