Understanding the drivers of equal opportunities in education is a major question in economics. A very relevant feature of different schooling models and school choice mechanisms concerns school segregation by family background. School segregation has a mechanical negative effect on intergenerational mobility, and moreover, it is likely to affect parental investment behavior, potentially reinforcing the decrease in mobility.
