ResumenImmigration is an important feature of many societies, and it has wideranging effects on the education systems of host and source countries. There is now a large empirical literature, but very little theoretical work on this topic. We study a model of family immigration in a framework where school quality and student outcomes are determined endogenously. We explain the selection of immigrants in terms of parental motivation and discuss the selection effect of different immigration policies. We provide novel evidence that is consistent with one of our main theoretical results: for a given socioeconomic background and skill level of parents, school performance of immigrant children in Spain improves with parental immigration costs. We also provide a detailed analysis of the effect of immigration on the different dimensions of the school system, such as student effort, parental involvement, school incentives and resources and how the endogenous response of the school system to immigration is interrelated with both immigrants’ and natives’ educational choices
