In this note we begin by replicate the results in “Schooling Quality in a Cross-Section of Countries” [Barro and Lee 2001, Economica 68]. Then, we go further and show that results can be different when more meaningful variables are considered. In particular, school inputs lessen their effects in some specifications, approximating the macroeconomic result from the microeconomic ones.
