Introduction
After successfully completing a MA in Sociology and a MA in philosophy, I obtained an advanced master's degree in 'Quantitative analysis in social sciences'. Then, I worked for 4 years as a statistician and a database manager at the French-speaking community of Belgium. From 2012 to 2017, I worked at the Germe on the ERC project “Equal Opportunities in educational systems with high levels of social and ethnic segregation”. Currently, I work as a Data Analyst at the Wallonie-Brussels Federation.

Assuming that free school choice is one of the parameters contributing to segregation in the Belgian educational system, the government implemented decrees to alter school enrolment policies in order to regulate school choice. In this study, two statistical approaches (a ‘Lorenz’ index and a multilevel one) have been used to measure the evolution o...

This paper investigates the links between the existence of a neighbourhood effect and school choice. The case study is Brussels. It offers the opportunity to analyse a segregated urban context with a school system organized as a quasi-market based on the freedom of school choice. Crossclassified multilevel analyses have been used on 36 427 students...

In Vlaanderen scoren 15-jarige leerlingen voor leesvaardigheid significant hoger dan het OESO-gemiddelde. Dat is niet het geval bij leerlingen van de Federatie Wallonië-Brussel. Ondanks de grote effectiviteit van het onderwijs in Vlaanderen haalt iets minder dan een zesde van de leerlingen toch niet het minimale vaardigheidsniveau dat nodig is om v...

Les élèves de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles se situent, par contre, dans la moyenne. Malgré l’efficacité élevée de l’enseignement en Flandre, environ un sixième des élèves n’atteignent pas le niveau minimal de compétences néce...

The aim of the contribution is to present the whole development of such a solution in a practical project where the team had no previous knowledge on this matter. We discuss the advantages and the limits of the approach, the changes in the...
Article
The effect of composition may be strong in systems where students are systematically sorted based on their socio-economic background. This paper aims to model the differential effect of class composition on pupils’ achievement in Belgium (French-speaking Community), France, Spain and Portugal. Multilevel models are consequently tested on the Progre...

We conducted correlation analyses on administrative data from the French-speaking education system in Belgium. This database regroups more than 20,000 teachers in 1,630 elementary schools. We selected indicators...

Article
Full-text available
The Belgian educational field includes separate educational systems reflecting the division of the country into linguistic communities. Even if the French-speaking and the Dutch-speaking communities keep sharing important similarities in terms of funding rules and structures, they present a huge gap between their respective pupils’ achievement. The...

Providing equal opportunities to students is a major goal of most educational systems. However, several countries have substantial difficulties in ensuring equal educational chances for migrant children compared to children without an immigration background. As a result, the achievement gap between migrant and natives students is a well-established...
