VIII NIS International Conference, 27-28 October 2016: Keynote Speech

Inequality through schooling: A worldwide phenomenon

Although the effect of tracking on educational inequality has long been the subject of education research (see Schmidt & Burroughs 2012 for a summary), until recently most of that work has relied on fairly blunt measures of curricular inequality (e.g. earliest age of tracking) and emphasized between-school differences. Recent research making use of student-level indicators of opportunity to learn (OTL) suggests widespread within-school inequality that is systematically related to student socioeconomic status (Schmidt et al. 2015). Schmidt et al. found that roughly a third of the relationship between SES and student mathematics scores on the 2012 PISA was due to the association of SES to OTL. In all countries there was a statistically significant relationship between OTL and student socioeconomic status. Further, the study uncovered considerable variation in which inequalities in SES-based inequalities in OTL were attributable to between or within school differences.
