dc.description.abstractWe develop a simple model which determines the optimal timing of school tracking as theoutcome of the trade off between the advantages of specialization, which call for earlytracking, and the costs of early selection, which lead to later tracking. We calibrate the modelfor Germany and study how relative demand shifts toward more general skills and changes inthe (exogenous) rate of technical progress affect the optimal tracking time as well as theefficient allocation of students to general and vocational tracks.en_US
