Vocational Schooling, Occupational Matching, and Labor Market Earnings in Israel
This paper examines the efficacy (in terms of labor market outcomes) of vocational school education in Israel as compared with that of academic schools. Using data from the 1983 population census, the study shows vocational schooling, which accounts for half of secondary school enrollment in Israel, to be more cost-effective than general school education for those students who do not go on to higher education. In particular, those who complete vocational school and who work in occupations related to a course to study pursued at school earn more (by up to 10 percent annually) than their counterparts who attended general secondary schools or those from vocational schools who are employed in noncourse-related occupations. These results provide strong reinforcement of recent, broadly similar studies for the United States.
