Abstract

La provisión privada de servicios educativos ha venido representando una proporción creciente del sistema educativo peruano, especialmente durante las últimas décadas. Mientras que han existido muchas quejas respecto a las diferencias en cuanto a calidad entre las escuelas públicas y privadas, no existe una evaluación completa acerca de los diferentes impactos de estos dos tipos de proveedores en el mercado de trabajo. Este trabajo provee tal visión comprensiva al explorar las diferencias público-privadas en los retornos individuales a la educación en el Perú urbano. Los resultados muestran mayores retornos a la educación para aquellos que atendieron escuelas privadas, especialmente a nivel del secundario, que aquellos que atendieron el sistema público. No obstante, estos mayores retornos son también mayores en cuanto a la dispersión, reflejando una mayor heterogeneidad en la calidad del sistema privado. Los resultados indican que estas diferencias se han venido expandiendo en las últimas dos décadas.
