Ruth Lupton
NESET Workshop report, 2011

This report presents the national and regional differences in inequality of education. The presentation drew on the PISA 2009 dataset to highlight: wide differences in reading scores of 15 year olds between countries; wide differences in socio-economic gradient between countries; differences between regions in countries with highly stratified systems (Germany, Belgium) in math scores and in socio-economic gradient.
