Abstract

This research examines the effects of private schools on public school’s quality. A premise of private school initiatives has been that these schools have direct benefits for students attending these schools and indirect benefits for other students by creating competition for public schools to improve their performance. Using cross sectional data for about 38 localities of Tucumán (2000), the research assesses how private school competition affects student-level achievement in public schools. The results show that competition doesn’t appear to improve the quality of public school
