Hide / Show Abstract

Based on the survey results of OECD's PISA 2000 programme, this report looks at: the extent to which the schools that students attend make a difference in performance; the relative impact of school climate, school policies and school resources on quality and equity; the relationship between the structure of education systems and educational quality and equity; and the effect of decentralisation and privatisation to school performance.  It concludes with a summary of how school factors relate to quality and equity, and the implications for policy.  The analysis and data cover almost all OECD countries and 14 additional non-OECD countries.
