This paper reports findings from the ESRI study ‘Adapting to Diversity’, which aims to provide national level data on how immigrants are distributed across Irish schools and on their levels of knowledge of English. The study points to demographic trends and residential segregation, school characteristics, parental choice of schools and school admission policies as factors that contribute to the placement of children in schools.
