Education has been considered as ―probably the most frequently used variable in Sociology and one of the most important variables in social science research‖ in general. In the field of status attainment processes, in which the present study is also included, education represents one of the key variables working both as a dependent and an independent phenomenon. This further relates to the importance of education as a variable affected by the structural context and, at the same time, as a factor intervening in status achievement processes1. In the present research, in operational terms, education is an explanatory factor in the form of the father‘s and mother‘s educational capital, and, correspondingly, a dependent variable, by examining the process of the respondent‘s educational attainment.
