This presentation focuses on the evolution of school inequalities in France between 2000 and 2012. It draws on an analysis of the PISA survey in France, especially in mathematics and literacy. In the last decade, in France, school inequalities have increased considerably in relation to school segregation related to socioeconomic and ethnic background. The following question will be addressed: to what extent is this increase in school inequalities a consequence of school policies in France?

I will present:

1- The question of school inequalities: efficiency and equity.

2- Presentation of French school system.

3- Evolution of school inequalities in France with PISA survey.

4- Discussion.
