In which Norman establishments is the social situation most favorable to learning? The Ministry of National Education has put the social position indices (IPS) of French schools and colleges online.
This index evaluates the social situation of pupils according to different criteria, such as the diplomas and professions of the parents, but also the material conditions of the home, the capital and the cultural practices, or the involvement of the parents in the schooling of the child.
The greater the social position index, the more the pupil evolves in a family context favorable to academic success.
