In this paper we explore the use of a conditional logits model that allows for varying effects of socioeconomic determinants on the schooling process. The results indicate that these determinants in general have a maximum effect in the middle of transitions in primary schooling and are weaker at both the beginning and especially at the end of this schooling process. Exceptions to this pattern are the effects of "head of household's schooling", which decline over the process, and those of "per capita family income" and "skin color", which tend to increase over the course of educational transitions.
