Sociologists have grown increasingly aware that the role of education in systems of stratification is more positional than absolute. The value of one’s level of attainment is less a simple function of the amount of schooling one has attained, and more a function of how much schooling one has relative to others in the educational queue. The idea of education as a positional good has far-reaching implications for research on such topics as job matching, educational expansion, and educational credentialism. I assess recent sociological treatments of educational positionality, and offer some directions for future research.
