La Necesidad De Gasto En Educación No Universitaria En Las Comunidades Autónomas: ¿Existe Igualdad De Oportunidades Educativas?
The aim of the present paper is to analyse if differences in non-university expenditure per student in Spanish regions are due to a higher necessity of resources for some of them. We have used principal component analysis, cluster analysis and multidimensional scaling to construct an indicator that allow us to compare the necessity of financial resources per groups of regions. Contrary to expectations, regions with higher necessity of resources show lower expenditure per pupil. This implies that if this trend continues, educational achievement and future income of a Spanish student could be closely bound with the geographic point of residence, all else equal. Classification-JEL : H52, I21, I22.
