The majority of articles are on the Dutch situation, which resembles that of other countries in many respects. Contributions include: (1) "Educational Inequality Research in the Netherlands.

Implementation, Classroom Practice and Effects of Two Projects: A Case Study" (Michiel van der Grinten); (4) "The Impact of Secondary School Recommendations on the Educational Careers of Disadvantaged Pupils" (Lia Mulder); (5) "The Educational Disadvantages of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Working-Class Children in Secondary Education" (Walter de Wit); (6) "Moroccan Children Acquiring Arabic in the Netherlands. Mother Tongue Instruction as a Means of Combating Educational Disadvantage" (Geert Driessen); (7) "Pupil Monitoring Systems and Their Pretensions" (Hermann Vierke and Paul Jungbluth); (8) "Looking at Inequality from Different Angles. Home Intervention and Organization Activities Check" (Loeke Genemans); (9) "Equal Opportunities in Education and the Economic Independence of Women in North-West Europe. A Comparative Study of the Situation in Norway, Sweden, the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands" (Hetty Dekkers); and (10) "A Framework for Educational Priority Routines. Recommendations and Checklist" (Paul Tesser). Four appendixes discuss the Dutch education system and the nonindigenous population of the Netherlands and provide a list of abbreviations and a discussion of the institute's research on inequality.
