[Abstract]We evaluate the educational situation of Salvadoran children with disabilities （CwDs）by employing a panel dataset of schools and municipalities constructed from the Schools Census of El Salvador for the years 2007 2014. We found that students with disabilities experience higher repetition and overage rates at the beginning of primary education, and higher dropout rates through the rest of primary and secondary education. Regression analysis results suggest that improving the coverage and availability of resources of the public education system can greatly contribute to the inclusion of children with disabilities. Future lines of research and areas of improvement for the collection and supply of educational data are proposed.
