Abstract

This paper investigates the significance of cultural capital in influencing educational achievement, drawing on a comparative analysis of various socio-cultural contexts. Cultural capital, defined as the non-financial social assets that promote social mobility and success within a culture, plays a crucial role in shaping educational outcomes. Through a review of existing literature and empirical data from diverse cultural settings, this study explores the ways in which cultural capital impacts students' academic performance, educational attainment, and social mobility. The analysis also examines the implications of cultural capital for educational policies and practices aimed at promoting equity and addressing educational disparities.
