Recommendation

The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) helps governments in its 34 member countries address economic, social and environmental issues relating to globalization. OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) monitors student progress across the member nations, which make up almost 90% of the global economy. PISA reports on how the management and funding of private and public schools relates to socioeconomic stratification. Advantaged students often enroll in privately managed schools because their parents believe these schools offer better learning environments, resources and facilities.

  • How school management and funding relate to socioeconomic stratification,
  • How public money can fund private schools, and
  • What other factors affect student stratification.
