An opinion survey is conducted to obtain the overall attitude towards educational inequality and social mobility, followed by comparisons on the social issues using official statistics and figures as published by the government and academia. The paper would compare the differences between how the general public perceive the issue of educational inequality and social mobility as reflected in the opinion survey, and the reality of the issues as presented by official data.
