SALCE DIAZ, Felipe. School dropout and quality of teachers in Chile. RAE [online]. 2020, vol.35, n.2, pp.135-159. ISSN 0718-8870.

This research analyzes possible causes of school desertion in high school students in Chile between 2004 and 2012. It looks for possible causes of school dropout and captures the fixed effect of teachers, to then use it as an index of “added value” and evaluate the movement of teachers within the education system. The first results show that students from municipal schools or those who have previously failed are more likely to drop out. On the other hand, it is observed that teachers with lower added value are more likely to work in municipal establishments and to leave private establishments.

Keywords : Education; value-added; school dropout.
