Educational pathways in systems around the world. A cross-national study into the contextual determinants of social reproduction.

The objective is to study cross-national differences in social reproduction through education. The aims are to determine the role of educational system arrangements in inequality, to understand how system-level effects on inequality are mediated by student and teacher behaviors, attitudes, and cultures, and to study whether cross-national differences in post-secondary pathways are due to secondary education structures and processes.
