Teachers College – Columbia University hosted me during the research for the first draft of this paper (Fall 2010). I am particularly indebted to prof. H. Levin, who gave me fundamental advices on this research project. I acknowledge the help from the Italian National Evaluation Committee (Invalsi) that provided me the original dataset, and especially the role of Patrizia Falzetti and Roberto Ricci. A preliminary version of this paper has been presented in a seminar at the University of Milan-Bicocca (Italy), Department of Statistics (16 February 2011); moreover, it has been discussed at the Conference of the Public Economic Theory Association, Bloomington (IN), June 2–4 2011. I am grateful to the participants for their useful comments. I am especially grateful to two anonymous referees, as their comments contributed to drastically improve the quality of the paper. All the eventual errors are my solely responsibility.
