This chapter assesses IEO in relation to parental education in the Netherlands. It shows the contribution of primary and secondary effects to IEO in the transitions to upper secondary and tertiary education for cohorts of students born in the 1970s and later. The chapter provides an overview of the Dutch educational system and the distribution of students in educational tracks over time. Results show that the relative importance of secondary effects at the first transition at age 12 has decreased over time and now amounts to an average of 38 percent of total IEO at this transition. While secondary effects lose some of their power at this transition, their importance clearly grows at later educational transitions.
