dc.description.abstractSchool vouchers introduced recently in some Italian regions have lowered the cost of privateschools. On one side, we provide evidence that Italian private schools may be selected fordifferent reasons than quality considerations. On the other side, by exploiting individual dataon voucher applicants, we present evidence that the percentage of voucher applicants ishigher the higher the average quality of private schools, which we explain with the fact thatbetter quality schools provide better services to students, including information andconsulting on vouchers. We show that enrolment in private schools responds sluggishly tochanges in tuition induced by vouchers. Under stringent assumptions, we estimate the slopesof demand and supply of private education in the largest Italian region, Lombardy, during thefirst two years since implementation of a voucher scheme, and provide a quantitativeassessment of the long-term impact of vouchers on tuition fees and enrolment in privateschools.en_US
