### Marzena Walaszek

#### Abstract

The main aim of the dissertation entitled “Diversity of school’s accessibility, learning conditions and educational outcomes in Poznan agglomeration” was to recognize spatial diversity of educational conditions and outcomes in primary, secondary and upper-secondary schools in Poznan agglomeration. The research was conducted on the background of intensive suburbanization. Theoretical base for formulating main hypotheses was a system concept. Under the hypothesis assumed that schools in Poznań Agglomeration are diversified from the viewpoint of material equipment, the potential of the teaching staff, educational offer (called: internal factors) as well as educational outcomes. One of the main hypothesis was that functioning of schools depends also on external factors (neighborhood), so circuit characteristics of the schools were also investigated (number, density and structure of population, transport network, criminality, housing). The main research question formulated on the basis of the system concept was: Do internal or external conditions have influence on educational outcomes achieved by pupils? Are these conditions diversified in city core and their surroundings? The lowest achievements of pupils in Poznań Agglomeration is the domain of highly urbanized and rural areas. The lowest educational outcomes characterize especially schools with high percentage of pupils from families in worse financial situation.
