    This paper addresses the incorporation of in-kind public transfers in the studies on income and welfare distribution. More precisely, we focus on the analysis of the effect the inclusion of public education has on income distribution. Therefore, we've added the estimated value of public education provided in Spain in 2006 to the household income. The outcomes show that public education reduces inequality in a significant way in the basic and secondary levels. On the other hand, we can’t observe a significant effect of the university level. Este trabajo aborda la incorporación de transferencias públicas en especie en los estudios sobre la distribución de la renta y el bienestar. Nos ocupamos, en particular, de analizar el efecto que la inclusión de la educación pública tiene sobre la desigualdad y el bienestar económico. Para ello hemos imputado a la renta de las familias una estimación del valor de la educación pública prestada en España en el año 2006. Los resultados que se obtienen indican que la educación pública reduce la desigualdad de un modo apreciable en los niveles básico y secundario, sin que se observe un efecto significativo en el nivel universitario.
