Segregation at Primary Schools in Germany: The Effect of Parental Choice of School

Policy Brief on How to Improve Educational Opportunities at Segregated Schools

Parental choice of school has a significant impact on the segregation of young migrants in the German education system. The Berlin case study shows that many native German families take active steps to circumvent the official (binding) assignment of primary schools. As a result one in five primary schools enrols twice as many migrant students than are found in its catchment area. Based on the analysis, the Policy Brief gives practical recommendations on how to improve educational opportunities at segregated schools.
