Summary/Abstract: This article presents the results of a study of the relations between parental socio-economic status (SES) and the organizational forms of education of their children with mild intellectual disability. The study was conducted on a Polish national sample of 260 families. It found that parental SES has a significant effect on the form of pupil education: most children from low SES families attend special schools whereas most children from higher SES families attend integrated schools. The study also found that this difference can largely be attributed to higher SES parents’ greater involvement in the choice of school for their children and different SES‑dependent parental preferences. The author concludes that parental‑SES‑contingent diversification of children’s educational pathways is a socially and educationally adverse phenomenon.q
