To examine differences in educational careers among nonindigenous youth in the Netherlands, a secondary analysis was performed on 1989-1992 questionnaire data from 2,024 secondary school students. Special attention was paid to socioeconomic status & circumstances of immigration. Analysis of family background factors, eg, ethnic origin & cultural level, revealed that parents' educational level corresponded positively with student academic achievement.
