Using a database from Chile, we have tested empirically the effects of economic residential segregation on educational achievements. Our hypothesis is based on literature's findings about segregation's negative impact on individuals' well being. We found that segregation has negative impacts. This result would have interesting policy implications and goes in the opposite directions of those investigations' findings, which indicate that segregation has just negligible effects.
