The present article investigates the reading literacy of students from immigrant families by means of a multilevel analysis of 24 Western countries based on PISA data from 2000 to 2009. Results indicate that on the level of macro-variables, the quality and the stratification within the educational system have a very important effect on immigrant students' reading skills. Schools and their resources as well as the social and ethnic composition of the student body are crucial as well. On the individual level, the cultural capital of the parents and the language spoken at home proved to be relevant. In addition, second-generation immigrant students had better scholastic achievements than first generation immigrant students. Furthermore, differences between natives and immigrant students have, over time, diminished in several countries.
