„In Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz, Belgien, Dänemark, Finnland, Luxemburg, Slowenien und Schweden ist unter Migranten und deren Nachkommen der Anteil leistungsschwacher Schüler besonders hoch.

Countries with a long tradition of a strong apprenticeship system are Austria, Germany and Switzerland ...

„Apprenticeships are an ideal way of providing relevant practical training […] Empirical research suggests that apprenticeships yield positive returns in terms of wages and job stability. Learning in the workplace also allows young people to develop both 'hard' skills on modern equipment and 'soft' skills (such as teamwork, communication or negotiation skills) through real-world experience. Countries with a long tradition of a strong apprenticeship system are Austria, Germany and Switzerland.“

„Regions attracting the highest share of highly educated migrants are mostly located in Canada, Australia, Northern Europe and Switzerland. […] In the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway and Sweden, most regions display larger shares of highly-educated among the foreign-born than among the nativeborn population. In all regions of Australia and most regions of Canada, the share of foreign-born with tertiary education is higher than that of natives by at least 10 percentage points.“

„The native-born children of immigrants are more likely than their peers with no migrant background to drop out early in two-fifths of countries, particularly in longstanding European destinations and the Nordic countries. Shares exceed 13 % in Sweden, Austria and Spain. The widest gaps in drop-out rates between pupils of foreign- and native-born parents are in Austria and Slovenia. […] In Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia, young people with a non-EU background are more than twice as likely to drop out as their peers of native-born parentage.“

„A country’s performance in PISA is […] unrelated to the use of standardised testing. Among countries and economies that perform near the top in science, the use of mandatory standardised tests is widespread in Beijing-Shanghai-Jiangsu-Guangdong (China), Singapore and the United Kingdom, but relatively uncommon in Germany, Korea and Switzerland.“

School systems with hierarchical tracks ...

„In school systems with hierarchical tracks, as they are common in some European countries (e.g., Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria), but also in Korea, China, Brazil, Russia, and Japan, tracking does take place at the school level. In these school systems, students are allocated by teachers to different schools with different curricula and different final degrees on the basis of their achievements and interests in primary school.“

Countries with a long tradition of apprenticeship systems ...

„Dual schooling systems combining class-based learning with work-based apprenticeships have received significant attention. This is partly because of the good performance in terms of low youth unemployment in countries with a long tradition of apprenticeship systems – notably Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland – along with evidence that apprenticeship training helps make transitions from school to work smoother even for youth who are not subsequently retained by the firm providing the training.“

„The mean HISEI (Anm.: HISEI = Highest International Socio-Economic Index of Occupational Status) among the children of Turkish immigrants is lower than the mean HISEI for the children of native-born parents in all countries. The gap is largest in Austria, which is the country where Turkish immigrants have the lowest HISEI, and smallest in Switzerland, which is the country where the average HISEI of Turkish children is highest.“
