dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this article is to evaluate the importance of social class, migration backgroundand command of national languages for the PISA school performance of teenagers living inEuropean countries (France, Finland, Germany, United Kingdom, and Sweden) andtraditional countries of immigration (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the US).Econometric results show that the influence of the socioeconomic background of parentsdiffers strongly across nations, with the highest impact found for Germany, the UK and US,whereas social mobility is more likely in Scandinavian countries and in Canada. Moreover, forall countries our estimations imply that for students with a migration background a key forcatching up is the language spoken at home. We conclude that educational policy shouldfocus on integration of immigrant children in schools and preschools, with particularemphasis on language skills at the early stage of childhood.en_US
