Here is a good article on BBC that shows the hidden bias in Education. But frankly it is also very evident in the workplace. Being a Continuous Improvement consultant, I get a chance to work with all layers of personnel in an organization, from the less college educated and more technical school worker to the Ivy league executive.
It is important to be aware of this hidden bias in others with respect to their own education level and how they may perceive our perception of them. Once we can see this hidden bias then we will be able to bring it to light within others, so it can be addressed and if it happens to be within ourselves, then we can consciously work towards rooting it out!
Bias of any kind hinders honest open communication and it is very important to maintain a clear dialogue with our colleagues and client (internal or external to the organization).
