Educational inequality of opportunity in Argentina

Main Article Content

Abstract

This paper analyzes the inequality of opportunity on education among young students of Argentina in the 2000s. It focuses on three dimensions of secondary education: access to education, access to quality education, and educational performance of students. We estimate distributions of educational outcomes conditional to the students’ circumstances using household survey data and PISA data. The results suggest that inequality of opportunity in access to secondary education is low and it has remained stable, but the inequality of opportunity in access to high quality education has increased in the last decade. In addition, the results indicate that the inequality of opportunity of educational performance is particularly high in Argentina.
