Abstract

Ralph Scott estimates the change in political values that occurs within individuals who graduate from university by applying longitudinal modelling techniques to data from the 1970 British Cohort Study. He finds that achieving a degree reduces authoritarianism and racial prejudice and that it also increases economic right-wing attitudes.
