The authors of this paper explore whether low socioeconomic status (SES) students benefit to a greater or lesser extent from attending high-quality schools when compared with their more advantaged peers. They find that academic school quality is even more important for students from low-SES backgrounds in terms of Year 12 completion. The differential impact for low-SES students also holds for tertiary entrance rank (TER) and the probability of going to university.
