Abstract

The present work describes la rate of change of students between schools in Chile during the years 2013 and 2014, and analyses the geographical factors of this change in the metropolitan Region of Chile.

The rate of change between schools was of 15,7%, with a similar volume of students moving out and into the public schools. There are important variations in the rate of change at municipality level. The results show that the rates of change are affected by academic performance, SIMCE tests scores, grade, administrative type of school and geographic distribution of schools.

The last point suggests that the geographic supply of education has important implications to understand school changes. We see that students increase travel distances with their age and those students that switch schools usually are the ones already traveling longer distances.
