Abstract

El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo evaluar el efecto de contar con una lengua materna distinta del castellano sobre la probabilidad de abandonar los estudios básicos en el Perú (en el nivel de primaria o secundaria). Para ello se emplea un modelo de duración de riesgo proporcional (Cox) y un modelo de tiempo de falla acelerado,utilizando información de la ENAHO 2008 y 2009, así como del Censo Escolar 2008. En ambos modelos se comprueba la existencia de un efecto significativo y positivo sobre la probabilidad de abandonar los estudios durante la primaria cuando se tiene al quechua como lengua materna. Sin embargo, este efecto no se presentaría en el caso de la secundaria. Por otro lado, para el conjunto de personas que tienen lenguas vernáculas distintas del quechua (entre ellas el aymara), el efecto no sería significativo en ninguno de los dos niveles mencionados. Los resultados encontrados, para el caso de la población quechua, echan luces sobre la efectividad del programa de educación intercultural bilingüe (EIB) para la reducción de las brechas en la acumulación de capital humano de la población vernáculo hablante respecto del resto de la población.
