Fairly recent data for about 100 countries indicate that as the average level of schooling increases, educational inequality first increases, and, after reaching a peak, starts declining in later phases of educational expansion. The turning point occurs when average schooling is about seven years. The observed empirical generalization, which seems quite robust, appears to have important implications for educational and distributional policies and for research on the linkage between education and income inequality.
