This article examines the dynamics of the relationship between residential and school segregation in Barcelona. The analysis explores which educational and non-educational drivers foster the school segregation of foreign students between the city’s neighbourhoods. The article also analyses to what extent the particularities of Barcelona’s admissions policy, which combines catchment areas with high levels of school choice, generate specific mechanisms of contextually bound school segregation within the local education market. The results confirm that residential segregation and educational segregation are two interrelated phenomena in Barcelona. In addition, the supply of publicly subsidised private schooling in the neighbourhoods is a main factor driving both educational segregation and isolation, especially in those neighbourhoods with a high concentration of foreign pupils. Based on the results, the article elaborates on the challenges for local education policymaking to address the dynamics of school segregation in urban spaces.摘要本文考察了巴塞罗那居住区和学校隔离之间的动态关系。我们的分析探讨了哪些教育和非教育驱动因素助长了该市居民区之间的外国学生学校隔离。文章还分析了巴塞罗那招生政策的特殊性(即学区制度和高水平的学校选择的结合)在多大程度上在当地教育市场中产生了与背景相关的学校隔离的具体机制。研究结果证实,在巴塞罗那,居住隔离和教育隔离是两种相互关联的现象。此外,街区公共补贴私立学校的供应是造成教育隔离和孤立的主要因素,特别是在外国学生高度集中的街区。基于此等研究结果,文章阐述了地方教育政策制定在应对城市空间学校隔离动态方面面临的挑战。
