University supply expansion and inequality of opportunity of access: the case of Uruguay, Education Economics

ISSNAño: 2019
EditorialEditorial: Education Economics

This paper examines whether opportunity of access to public university has improved over the period 2008–2013 in Uruguay; in which an important territorial expansion of the public university supply, historically located in Montevideo (the capital of Uruguay), to other regions of the country (named the Interior) took place. Results suggest that Uruguay expanded opportunity to access university increasingly towards the more disadvantaged individuals. However, as the coverage rate of students from better-off parental educational background increased more than for those from less-privileged ones, inequality of opportunity worsened in the Interior.
