El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar la eficiencia técnica de los establecimientos educacionales en Chile, entendiendo por ésta la capacidad de los establecimientos de generar el máximo producto (logro educativo) dada su combinación de insumos. Para ello se utilizan dos técnicas alternativas de medición de eficiencia: la estimación de una frontera de producción estocástica, y el data envelopment analysis (DEA), que permite identificar en forma no paramétrica la frontera de producción eficiente de los establecimientos analizados. Ambas técnicas tienen ventajas y limitaciones que son discutidas en el trabajo; no obstante, conducen a las mismas conclusiones al analizar una muestra de más de 5000 establecimientos educacionales. Los resultados obtenidos ofrecen interesantes elementos para el diseño de las políticas educacionales de Chile.
