This paper uses the OECD-PISA 2009 data for studying the factors associated with the probability of poor students being resilients, i.e. obtaining good test scores despite their disadvantaged socioeconomic background. The results reveal that only students'individual characteristics matter, indeed a positive school climate is statistically associated with resiliency; also, educational systems that invest more resources and postpone tracking may help disadvantaged students to overcome their unfavourable background and promote higher equalities of opportunities.

Abstract

This paper uses the OECD-PISA 2009 data for studying the factors associated with the probability of poor students being resilients, i.e. obtaining good test scores despite their disadvantaged socioeconomic background. The results reveal that only students'individual characteristics matter, indeed a positive school climate is statistically associated with resiliency; also, educational systems that invest more resources and postpone tracking may help disadvantaged students to overcome their unfavourable background and promote higher equalities of opportunities.
