Competencia y Resultados Educativos: Teoría y Evidencia para Chile

  • Francisco Gallego


    (Instituto de Economía. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.)

Este trabajo presenta un modelo conceptual y estimaciones empíricas para estudiar los efectos de la competencia que enfrentan los colegios sobre la calidad de la educación que ofrecen. Los resultados empíricos, obtenidos utilizando información para cerca de 5000 colegios entre 1994 y 1997 y estimaciones robustas a endogeneidad, apoyan las predicciones del modelo teórico y muestran un efecto positivo y económicamente relevante de la competencia en los resultados de los colegios chilenos subvencionados. Esos efectos son relativamente mayores para los colegios particulares subvencionados, que enfrentan incentivos más directamente relacionados con su desempeño académico.
