Educational Reform and Labor Market Outcomes: the Case of Argentina's Ley Federal de Educacion

María Laura Alzúa, Leonardo Gasparini and Francisco Haimovich ()

Working Papers PIERI from PEP-PIERI

Abstract: In the nineties Argentina implemented a large education reform (Ley Federal de Educación – LFE) that mainly implied the extension of compulsory education in two additional years. The timing in the implementation substantially varied across provinces, providing a source of identification for unraveling the causal effect of the reform. The estimations from difference-in-difference models suggest that the LFE had an overall positive although mild impact on education and labor outcomes. The impact on the income-deprived youths was small for education outcomes and null for labor outcomes.
