This article examines the role that education played in social mobility in the USSR during the 1970s and in the post-Soviet Russia during the 1990s. The aim is to comment critically on the nature of social mobility in the light of the education reforms and policy changes during the 1970s and the 1990s (Zajda, 2007). The overall discrepancy between social categories in the student body as a whole, and society at large reflected both social stratification and educational inequality.
