This paper uses UK data to estimate the returns to schooling. We address the endogeneity of schooling by exploiting the experimental nature of two changes in the minimum school leaving age to instrument eduction. The corrected estimates of the return to education indicate the presence of a large and significant negative bias in the lest squares estimate of the rate of return.
