Statut d'immigrant, developpement des competences a un jeune age et participation aux etudes postsecondaires : comparaison entre le Canada et la Suisse


  • Hou, Feng
  • Picot, Garnett


Le present document porte sur les differences entre les taux de participation aux etudes postsecondaires des eleves issus de familles d'immigrants et des eleves non immigrants en Suisse et au Canada. Pour les deux pays, un ensemble riche de donnees longitudinales, y compris les antecedents familiaux, les aspirations familiales concernant les etudes postsecondaires et les resultats des eleves mesures au moyen des scores du Programme international pour le suivi des acquis des eleves (PISA), servent a expliquer ces differences. Deux groupes sont analyses : tous les eleves de 15 ans; et tous les eleves de 15 ans du secondaire obtenant de faibles resultats.
