Abstract. This paper evaluates the role that geography plays in determining the distribution of educational attainment levels among Romanian counties. We provide evidence that, in Romania, educational levels are higher in those counties with greater market access. This finding corroborates the theoretical predictions of the Redding and Schott´s (2003) model and proves that remoteness is a penalty for the economic development and convergence of the Romanian counties.

Keywords: Economic Geography; Education Attainment Levels; Romania.
