The protagonist is male sent back in time by a dragon's power.

He goes back to school for magic which is segregated into alpha class and beta class. He wants to change this as alpha class is the upper class society, and beta is the commoners. The alpha class receives better training, which is not shared with beta class.

I believe this is A Returner's Magic Should Be Special.

It starts off with a group of people fighting a dragon. They defeat it with Desir Arman, the main character, using his magic to stop the dragon's magic. Afterwards he mentions that he was not fully trained or educated. The first chapter ends with the dragon's body's remaining magic exploding, which ends up sending Desir into the past when he was taking the magic academy's entrance exam.

During the entrance exam he meets Ajest, a magic swordsman who was with the group that defeated the dragon in the future, and Romantica, the girl he had fell in love with in the future. After the exam Desir, Romantica, and a boy named Pram form a party. Later Ajest also joins the party. At the school, they get sent into places called "Shadow Worlds". These worlds are past events that they then have to change to prevent a problem that had happened in the past.

Desir's objective is to prevent the calamities he experienced in the future from coming to pass by training his party to be stronger than they were to overcome the problems he knows they will face in the future.
