In the presented paper, mediating proximal processes which link family structure to offspring educational trajectories are addressed. For this purpose, the German Transition Panel covering six years was used to shed light on educational transitions following the last year of compulsory schooling among those adolescents who left the lower school track. These data go beyond the closer family context and also considers personal as well as structural resources when seeking to predict the different types of educational trajectories identified.
