The paper analyses inequalities in educational outcomes (IEO) by class of family of origin in Italy and Spain for five 10 year cohorts born from 1920 to 1969, using the cumulative logit (ordinal regression) model. In both countries education expanded, the question is whether the class IEO's remained stable or diminished. The dominant view in the nineties was that, with the exception of few countries, inequalities persisted, in the last decade the consensus on this is changing and decreasing class IEO is now more often found. Italy was given as an example of expansion while maintaining class IEO. Spain was not included in previous analyses. The results show clearly that class IEO diminish in Spain as well as in Italy; differences in timing of expansion and change in IEO can be accounted for through the different institutional settings of the two countries. A more contained reduction of IEO in Spain than in Italy is found.
