Private School Quality in Italy

Giuseppe Bertola, Daniele Checchi () and Veruska Oppedisano ()

Giornale degli Economisti, 2007, vol. 66, issue 3, 375-400

Abstract: Private school enrolment may lead to worse subsequent performance in further education or in the labour market. If students differ in their ability not only to pay but to take advantage of educational opportunities (“talent” for short), private schools attract a worse pool of students when publicly funded schools are better suited to foster progress by more talented students. In the data we analyze, the impact of observable talent proxies on educational and labour market outcomes is indeed more positive for students who (endogenously) choose to attend public schools than for those who choose to pay for private education.
