Abstract

Immigration is an important problem in many societies, and it has wide-ranging e ects on the educational systems of host countries. There is a now a large empirical literature, but very little theoretical work on this topic. We introduce a model of family immigration in a framework where school quality and student outcomes are determined endogenously. This allows us to explain the selection of immigrants in terms of parental motivation and the policies which favor a positive selection. Also, we can study the e ect of immigration on the school system and how school quality may self-reinforce immigrants' and natives' choices.
