What Do Immigrant Students Tell Us About the Quality of Education Systems?

  • Immigrant students who share a common country of origin, and therefore many cultural similarities, perform very differently across school systems.
  • The difference in performance between immigrant students and non-immigrant students of similar socio-economic status is smaller in school systems with large immigrant populations and where immigrant students are as diverse in socio-economic status as other students.
