The effect of additional resources for disadvantaged students: Evidence from a conditional efficiency model /Authors: Kristof De Witte, Mike Smet, Giovanna D’Inverno/

Abstract:

Inequalities in educational and lifelong learning opportunities prevent individuals from reaching their full potential and their personal satisfaction. To reduce the impact of disadvantaged backgrounds on educational achievement, many policies have been promoted. Among them, the Flemish Community of Belgium offers an interesting setting given the inequality level experienced by its educational system. Specifically, the Flemish Ministry of Education enacted a program to provide additional funding to schools with a significant proportion of disadvantaged students. These additional resources are allocated according to an exogenous cut-off. We exploit this information to evaluate the effect of additional funding for disadvantaged students on educational outcomes by using a conditional efficiency analysis. Particular attention is devoted to the impact of socio-economic background variables. Our analysis relies on administrative data on students in secondary education in Flanders.
