KRUGER, Natalia. Educational Segmentation in argentina: considerations from a micro and macro perspective. Pág. Educ. [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp.137-156. ISSN 1688-7468.

The segmentation of the educational system in Argentina may be identified as one of the main processes involved in the reproduction of social inequalities. This notion refers to the fact that the system is divided into groups of institutions of differential quality in which students are distributed according to their socioeconomic background. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the comprehension of this phenomenon. Following a brief exposition about the concept, the outlook, and the main implications of educational segmentation, its causes and dynamics are analyzed from a double perspective: 1) macro-social: in order to understand the global and historical trends which serve as a background and act as objective determinants; ii) micro-social: an institutional approach is proposed as a means to identify the behavioral patterns and norms involved in the determination of this particular configuration of the education system

Palabras clave : education; equality; institutions; segmentation; social reproduction.
