£200,000 more income for privately-educated children

The BBC reported a survey by the Social Market Foundation that said privately educated children could expect to earn £200,000 more than state-educated children between the ages of 26 and 42.

The 7% of Britain’s children who are privately educated can expect an earnings premium of 30-40% per hour.

This earnings gap is no surprise, though it is bigger than some people may have thought.
