  • This paper examines the hypothesis of whether academic performance has active participation in a process of educational convergence using knowledge saber11 (2005 - 2016) through the methodology used by Arellano & Bond (1991) GMM in differences ratifying the closing of gaps and the decrease of social inequalities. An analysis of β-Beta convergence and σ-sigma convergence is employed. In general, all the indicators show the existence of a high conditional β-convergence of the academic performance although an increase in the dispersion of the same is sustained ratifying the absence of σ-sigma convergence, as controls, indicators proposed by the Ministry of National Education are used of context, resources, process and results.
