Abstract: This paper analyzes the inequality of opportunity in education among students from Argentina. We examine the student’s achievement in mathematics and reading. We use Aprender assessment database and we estimate a counterfactual distribution of educational outcomes conditional to the students’ circumstances and we compute inequality of opportunity indexes. The results suggest that educational inequality is low but a relevant proportion of this inequality is related to circumstances. Indeed, inequality of opportunity accounts for up to 30 percent of the inequality in educational outcomes. The most relevant circumstances shares are the socioeconomic level and the parent’s education.
