Retornos privados de educação individual no Paraná
There are serious problems in educational system in Brazil and Paraná State. Thus, implementation of policies towards the educational system in these two spheres is indispensable. However, there are some uncertainties in relation to the allocation of the resources. Therefore, because resources are scarce, the educational level that must be given more importance is the one that have the greatest potential of rising productivity. Having this concern as the central question to be answered in the present study, we carried out an analysis of the workers’ schooling on their wage return in Parana´ State to evaluate which educational level (elementary school, secondary school or college) is more important in income generation and, therefore, in labor productivity.
