Abstract

Mejorar la calidad educativa es una de las tareas prioritarias en América Latina y particularmente en países como Bolivia, donde la educación ha comenzado a ser un tema crucial en la agenda pública, especialmente a partir de 1994 cuando se implementa una nueva Reforma Educativa. El objetivo de este trabajo es examinar los factores que inciden en el desempeño de los alumnos, identificando tanto factores asociados a los niños y sus características familiares, como factores asociados a los colegios y, adicionalmente, comparar el desempeño escolar de colegios públicos y privados, de acuerdo a los resultados de test estandarizados de rendimiento. El análisis estadístico utiliza información del Sistema de Medición y Evaluación de la Calidad de la Educación (SIMECAL) para los alumnos de 6º grado de primaria de más de 500 establecimientos educacionales.
