Placeholder Show Content


This dissertation is a collection of three essays on education policy in Latin America. The first chapter delves into understanding the consequences of affirmative action as a tool to increase the participation of marginalized students in selective public colleges in Brazil. The second chapter studies the optimal design of student loans as a lever to foster the inclusion of poor students in private colleges in Brazil. Finally, the third chapter explores the interplay between private and public actors by studying a large increase in the number of public primary and secondary schools in the Dominican Republic.
