There is a close interactive relationship between social mobility and educational selection. On one side, the character, direction, speed, level, methods and trends of social mobility affect the aims, goals, functions, scope, strategy, content and methods of choice in education. On the other side, the goals, basis and means of choosing education promote inter-generational social mobility, competitive mobility and structural optimization. In recent years, social mobility and educational selection are increasingly coming into contact in China, but there are still a lot of mutual constraints. In order to promote a coordinated operation and positive interaction between them, society should strive to create a stable democratic political environment, sustained and balanced economic growth, and an open and orderly employment system.

This book presents the results of a research on the integration of second generation migrants in Catalonia. Drawing on in-depth biographical interviews, we demonstrate the link between language and social mobility. Language is a particularly important social issue in Catalonia. A bilingual region in northeast Spain, Catalonia has been receiving foreign migration for several decades. Nowadays, some of the children of those migrants are entering the labor market. For many migrant families, providing social mobility for their children was one of their main goals. What effects does bilingualism have on the social trajectories of migrant children? Is Catalan important for social mobility? The book answers these questions focusing on the fate of three migrant communities: Argentineans, Colombians and Moroccans.     

El libro presenta los resultados de una investigación sobre la segunda generación de inmigrantes en Cataluña. Basado en entrevistas biográficas en profundidad, demostramos el vínculo entre lengua y movilidad social. La lengua es una cuestión particularmente importante en Cataluña. Una región bilingue en el nordeste de España, Cataluña ha estado recibiendo migración extranjera durante varias décadas. Actualmente, algunos de los hijos de esos inmigrantes están entrando en el mercado de trabajo. Para muchas familias inmigrantes, conseguir la movilidad social para sus hijos era uno de los principales objetivos. Que efectos tiene el bilinguismo en las trayectorias de los niños inmigrantes? El Catalán es importante para la movilidad social? El libro responde a estas preguntas centrandose en el destino de tres comunidades inmigrantes: Argentinos, Colombianos y Marroquies.
