Migration background and educational achievements in Russia

Migraciones Internacionales. 2017. Vol. 9. No. 1. P. 69-93.
Tovar-García E. D.

Using logit regressions and longitudinal data of schoolchildren aged 6-14 (from 1st to 8th grades) over the period 2010-2013 (four waves), this article empirically examines the impact of migration status on educational achievements in Russia.  In contrast to most of the previous empirical literature, our panel data control the impact of monotonous determinants of educational achievements, such as parental education, family income, parental professional status, and many other key background factors. Our findings suggest that migration background has no effect on educational achievements after controlling for socioeconomic status (SES), child’s health, school type, settlement, and other personal characteristics, which have statistically significant effects in distinguishing between successful and unsuccessful students.
