    Does School Privatization Improve Educational Achievement?
    Evidence from Sweden’s Voucher Reform

    This paper evaluates general achievement effects of choice and competition between private
    and public schools at the nine-year school level by assessing a radical voucher reform that
    was implemented in Sweden in 1992. Starting from a situation where the public schools
    essentially were monopolists on all local school markets, the degree of privatization has
    developed very differently across municipalities over time as a result of this reform. We
    estimate the impact of an increase in private enrolment on short, medium and long-term
    educational outcomes of all pupils using within-municipality variation over time, and control
    for differential pre-reform and concurrent municipality trends. We find that an increase in the
    private school share moderately improves short-term educational outcomes such as 9thgrade
    GPA and the fraction of students who choose an academic high school track.
    However, we do not find any impact on medium or long-term educational outcomes such as
    high school GPA, university attainment or years of schooling. We conclude that the first-order
    short-term effect is too small to yield lasting positive effects.
