Notes
  • In this paper we estimate a multinomial logit model of the choice of first destination. The data used is the Youth Cohort Studies for England and Wales, covering the period from 1985 to 1992. We find that whilst prior attainment has the strongest influence on the selection of academic education, participation rates into post-compulsory education have also increased for young people of average ability. The most able young people who attend a secondary modern school are likely to select education, but choosing vocational rather than academic courses. Non-whites are more likely than whites to continue in education. Interaction effects clearly show that for even the most able, the socio-economic status of parents is an important influence on the choice of destination.
