We have the pleasure to welcome the members of the ISOTIS (Inclusive Education and Social Support to Tackle Inequalities in Society) WP1 in Amsterdam on September 25 and 26. Aim of the meeting is to discuss two manuscripts the members of the work package have worked on, and to discuss further steps that need to be taken to place the results in a broader comparative framework. The two manuscripts are supported by two members of our research team:
Jesper Rözer has created a pseudo panel that describes inequalities by gender, ethnicity and socio-economic background in test-scores in mathematics, science and literature. It covers the period 1995-2016 and included people between 10 and 32 years old. During the meeting he will describe the underlying methods and variables and challenges to analyze this dataset.
Herman van de Werfhorst has contributed together with the other members of the work package on a paper that uses longitudinal data from several European countries to describe the inequalities in education. This paper as well as the results will be discussed by the members of the work package.
