    (Chair for Economic Policy, University of Passau)


Diese Arbeit untersucht Unterschiede in den Schulleistungen zwischen Jungen und Maedchen sowie moegliche Ursachen, die sich aus Charakteristika der Eltern und institutionellen Rahmenbedingungen ergeben. Hierzu werden die Daten der Schulleistungsstudie PISA 2000 mit einer Drei-Ebenenanalyse untersucht. Dabei wird auf den Global Gender Gap Index des World Economic Forum als Mass fuer Gleichberechtigung zurueckgegriffen. Die Bildung der Eltern hat eine deutliche Wirkung auf die Schulleistungen der Kinder. Das Abitur der Muetter ist fuer Toechter wichtiger als das der Vaeter, welches wiederum fuer die Soehne wichtiger ist. Gleichzeitig unterliegt der Einfluss des Vaters einer groesseren Varianz zwischen den 37 Staaten. Groessere Anstrengungen zur Gleichberechtigung von Frauen koennen durchaus ein Schluessel fuer zukuenftigen Bildungserfolg sein. Dies gilt insbesondere fuer die Laender, die bei PISA 2000 speziell beim Leseverstaendnis unterdurchschnittlich abgeschnitten hatten.
