Abstract

Luxembourg is ranked among the countries with the highest disposable income per capita in the EU; despite that, the society is characterised by a wide range of inequalities. In this paper, we focus on the educational dimension of inequalities and seek to provide a brief literature overview on the key features of disparities that exist in Luxembourg’s education system. Our main intention is to define groups of children that are characterised as disadvantaged and describe the amount of inequalities they may face within or across their educational trajectories. We further proceed to discussing causes that scholarly discourse provides to explain the existence of these inequalities and measures that are expected to potentially minimise them.
