On the other hand, the Screening Hypothesis states that education has no effect on labor productivity, that it is merely a signaling device that employers use to select the more skilled workers. Since there is no gain in productivity, according to this theory, the benefit of educational investment is : Fernanda Padrón.

Social returns to education differ from private returns. Thus, while screening has productivity returns, it will decrease equality. Thus for some regions there is a tradeoff between efficiency and distributional concerns.
