Equity in student achievement across OECD countries : an invesigation of the role of policies /

by Causa, Orsetta | Chapuis, Catherine.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Based on harmonised 15-year old students? achievement data collected at the individual level, the empirical analysis shows that while Nordic European countries exhibit relatively low levels of inequality, continental Europe is characterised by high levels of inequality - in particular of schooling segregation along socio-economic lines - while Anglo-Saxon countries occupy a somewhat intermediate position. Policies allowing increasing social mix are found to reduce school socio-economic segregation without affecting overall performance. Countries that emphasise childcare and pre-school institutions exhibit lower levels of inequality of opportunity, suggesting the effectiveness of early intervention policies in reducing persistence of education outcomes across generations. There is also a positive association between inequality of opportunities and income inequality. As a consequence, cross-country regressions suggest that redistributive policies can help to reduce inequalities of educational opportunities associated with socioeconomic background and, hence, persistence of education outcomes across generations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
