In Israel, Social Climbing Has a Glass Ceiling
Israelis born to low-income or undereducated parents are less likely to move up socially, advance in their careers, or engage in academic studies

Israelis born to low-income or undereducated parents are less likely to move up socially, a survey published Tuesday by the country's Central Bureau of Statistics shows. According to the survey, the number of people over 30 who do not have a high school diploma is higher among those whose parents did not complete their secondary education: about two thirds had parents who did not attend high school, 25% of them had parents who graduated from high school, and just 7% of them had at least one parent with an academic degree.
Among people over 30 that had an academic degree, 70% had at least one parent with an academic degree, and just 15% had parents without an academic education.
The numbers are ok
2k per capita is 10k per family sounds right for low end. 4k pre caita is 20k pre family. 5 would have been a better number but 20k per family is a good high end for the middle class (30k is better)
Where did they get these income figures?
The average income in Israel is NIS10k/month. The minimum wage is above 4K/month. Either you made a typo or this is a bogus study.
Average income per capita 2000 NIS? And at the higher end 4000 NIS? isn't that a bit low?

True that in Israel, folks from low-income or less educated households are less likely to move up in the socio-economic ladder, but … in which country is that NOT true?? This is not really shocking news.
culture and money
i think education needs a lot of money and needs parents to see their wealth and future in the educated sons and daughtores
