Abstract

This paper complements the work of Sacerdote (1999) and Zimmerman (1999) by examining peer effects in a context where many students are from the types of disadvantaged backgrounds that are often the focus of education policy. The paper finds strong evidence of peer effects for females and suggests that a net gain is likely to result from combining students from diverse backgrounds.
