En este trabajo se documenta y analiza la segregación escolar entre alumnos de distintos estratos socioeconómicos que asisten a escuelas públicas y privadas en América Latina. El trabajo contribuye con evidencia empírica a la medición de este fenómeno desde principios de los noventa hasta la actualidad. Los resultados sugieren que en promedio el grado de segregación escolar público-privado en América Latina habría aumentado en las últimas dos décadas.
