Zusammenfassung

It is a conventional belief that school is an instrument for a so called ‘pursuit of happiness’: The individual amount of school attendance is reflected in life earnings (Card/Krueger 1992). The influence of family background on education is to make children better suited to obtain the benefits of their educational opportunity. Even though this is often stated otherwise, schools mediate between family background and school results.
