This article quantifies the requirements of management improvement and resource endowments that Chilean schools need to achieve optimal levels of performance, combining the literatures on efficiency and productivity, school effectiveness and the theory on resources and capabilities. The study shows that the improvement in outcomes, due to an increase in the endowments of resources, is higher than the improvements of results in academic achievement, which can be attained due to efficiency gains. Specifically, the increase in resource endowments in the medium term should be, on average, larger in infrastructure and equipment, obtaining better results when focusing in those schools in a more unfavorable environment. © 2011, Instituto de Estudios Fiscales.
