Resumen

Mexico, as a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), has
shown in recent years that its level in education is below the average that other member countries
have. Given this, the relationship between public spending directed to sport and the impact it
generates on the educational indicators of the State of Jalisco will be determined. It is used a subset
of 39 municipalities analyzed by means of a model with panel data through estimates with fixed
effects. There is no evidence of positive effects of the expenditure allocated to sport on education
indicators and, consequently, there is no improvement in school performance. The conclusion is that
the tools of action used by the State do not comply with a principle of coherence, since they
understand that the problems must be solved with instruments aligned with their nature.
