Reformas Administrativas y Curriculares: El Efecto de la Ley Federal de Educación sobre el Acceso a Educación Media


  • Facundo Crosta

    (Centro de Estudios Distributivos, Laborales y Sociales (CEDLAS) - FCE - UNLP)


Se estiman, por diferencias en diferencias, los efectos sobre el acceso a educación media de la implementación de la reforma originada en la Ley Federal de Educación (Nº24.195/1993). Se concluye que su aplicación logra mejorar el acceso pero lo hace aún más sobre las trayectorias escolares. Se muestra que estos resultados disminuyen con el nivel educativo e incluso son negativos para las provincias con más de 10 años de educación (nivel meta de la Ley). Adicionalmente, estos efectos son crecientes a medida que transcurre el tiempo de aplicación por lo que debiera esperarse cierta convergencia entre provincias. Palabras Claves: Reforma Educativa, Evaluación de impacto, Heterogeneidad de efectos, Acceso a la educación, Calidad del acceso a educación, Argentina, Ley Federal de Educación, Ley Nacional de Educación.
