Educational achievements and social origins in Italy
AbstractUsing a representative sample of the Italian population, we study the association between drop-out and social origins. We also investigate the correlations with the secondary school track chosen by those who are able to proceed further on. Given the interplay between individual school assessment and the financial situation of the family of origin, we advance proposals for the design of possible scholarship schemes capable of contrasting dropout outcomes.
