Abstract

En este estudio se determinan las diferencias en las pruebas del ICFES entre alumnos de colegios públicos y privados. Después de controlar por las características de los individuos, del hogar, de la infraestructura del colegio y el nivel educativo de los docentes, tanto a nivel nacional como a nivel urbano y rural se encuentra una diferencia significativa en favor de los privados. Ésta es atribuible a características no observables, entre las que figuran el sistema de incentivos y ascensos de los maestros. Las diferencias a favor de los colegios privados son más marcadas en los niveles de ingresos medios y altos y, de hecho, en el nivel de ingreso más bajo los estudiantes de colegios públicos obtienen logros superiores. Como una primera aproximación a los efectos de las características no observables, comparamos los logros de colegios públicos, privados y de educación contratada (educación pública administrada por la iglesia) en los 36 municipios donde ésta funciona. Se encuentra una diferencia significativa a favor de la educación contratada, y resultados más favorables para los colegios públicos que para los privados. Dado que en estos municipios operan programas de Escuela Nueva --innovadora versión de escuela pública-- ello sugiere que no solo importa la diferencia entre colegios públicos y privados, sino también las diferencias dentro de cada grupo de ellos. En todos los casos, controlamos por la endogeneidad en la escogencia delcolegio, algo novedoso para Colombia.
