H.P. Blossfeld, S. Buchholz, J. Skopek &  M. Triventi (Eds.) (2016). Models of Secondary Education and Social Inequality: An International Comparison, Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar

From an international comparative perspective, this third book provides a thorough investigation into how social inequalities arise during individuals’ secondary schooling careers. Paying particular attention to the role of social origin and prior performance, it focuses on tracking and differentiation in secondary schooling examining the short- and long-term effects on inequality of opportunities. It looks at ways in which differentiation in secondary education might produce and reproduce social inequalities in educational opportunities and educational attainment.
