About this series
This series is based on the International Study of City Youth (ISCY), a new and innovative international study that considers how well education systems are working, for whom, and why.
ISCY is a longitudinal study of 10th Grade students in 15 cities: Barcelona, Bergen, Bordeaux, Ghent, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Montreal, Reykjavik, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Sacramento, Tijuana, Santiago, Turku and Wroclaw.
The series features volumes on various topics written by researchers based across the ISCY network. Current volumes to be released in the series involve work on educational opportunity and inequality, social and cultural contexts, skills for the 21st Century, school effects and student engagement.
