Abstract [en]

Educational equity has deteriorated in Sweden from the late 1980s onwards. However, it is not clear what the main sources behind this trend are. The present study aims therefore to investigate the development of educational equity at different levels of the Swedish educational system inorder to identify possible sources of the change. Students' school grades and family educational background for the cohorts leaving compulsory school between 1998 and 2014 were analysed in three-level hierarchical models. Increased segregation with respect to student composition and academic outcomes across different schools was found to be the main source of the declining educational equity. The findings are discussed in the light of differentiated learning opportunities, as a result of recent school reforms in Sweden.
