Abstract

Class differentials in educational attainment can be seen as a consequence of primary and secondary effects (Boudon 1974). The former,describe the influence of social origin on measured academic ability early in a child’s educational career; the latter operate through the choices that students and their families make within the educational system, given the student’s level of measured academic ability. In this work we evaluate the relative contributions of primary and secondary effects in creating educational inequalities in Italy at the transitions to upper secondary and tertiary education.
