School cover policy and academic achievement: the case of Medellin´s concession program

  • Barrientos Marín, Jorge


Registered author(s):

    Resumen: en años recientes la Alcaldía de Medellín lanzó un programa de cobertura escolar para jóvenes por fuera del sistema educativo público. El programa, conocido como Colegios en Concesión, fue diseñado para proveer educación pública con administración privada en lugares donde la oferta de cupos escolares era reducida. En esta investigación indagamos por el impacto del programa sobre el logro académico de los estudiantes. Metodológicamente nos inclinamos por la metodología de pareo o matching. A pesar de la buena reputación de los colegios en concesión nosotros ncontramos evidencia de que sus estudiantes tuvieron un desempeño inferior que sus pares en colegios administrados por medios públicos.
