Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to analyze the social and cultural conditions for upper secondary students’ access to higher education and ability to navigate in the complex national and international educational markets: what are elite students’ dispositions towards higher education and what resources do students with differing dispositions rely upon in shaping their choices.  The article draws on a statistical mapping of the social structure of upper secondary schools and programmes and its intersection with higher education in the city region of Stockholm and on interviews, conducted among students in educational programs preparing for higher education at four prestigious public upper secondary schools in Stockholm the academic year 2013-2014.

The increasingly complex landscape give advantage to especially resourceful social groups. Not only the cultural fractions of the upper middle classes, who benefits from their close relationship to the educational system and knowledge in how to choose proper and successful educational trajectories, profits from the marketization of education. The emerging internationalization of education rifts an already complex educational landscape further apart. The accumulation of international educational capital is much more dependent on economic capital than on cultural acquisitions, due to the expensive costs of the kind of experiences it suppose.

Abstract [en]

To be educated in a world that is shared with others. This article’soverall purpose is to contribute to the discussion on the relevance ofDemocracy and Education (1916) a hundred years after its publication. Itis first and foremost John Dewey as a political thinker, whose philosophywas determined by a commitment to the values of community, publiclife, and shared experience, that stands in focus. The aim is twofold;to begin with the article sets out to discuss the concept of democracyand its roots in Dewey’s early writings and simultaneously a foundationfor conceptualizations in later works. Democracy and Education is thusinterpreted at the intersection of early findings and future work. Secondly,in the light of reading Democracy and Education between his past andfuture writings, the article sheds light on the shortcomings of the presenteducational debate and argues for the importance to re-think the socialfunction of education amidst the private and the public sphere.

Abstract [en]

: This article centers on difference and similarities in political participation among young people. The analysis focuses first on the educational and social dimensions of all “don’t know” and “no opinion” responses to political questions in a survey on political opinions, interests, and attitudes, and secondly on civic engagement and a wide range of political participation such as joining political parties or special interest groups, participating in political acts, and the propensity to read a newspaper, whether a national daily paper, a local paper, or an evening paper, and to what extent the opinion or arts pages attract different groups of students in upper secondary school. The analysis, inspired by a Bourdieusian approach to class and politics, reveal that social class still play an important role in understanding the distribution of political participation among young citizens.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to explore and understand young rural citizens’ political position-takings. By employing a Bourdieusian approach to class and politics, we are able to show class still offers an important tool for understanding differing political position-takings. By comparing this study carried out on a population from a rural mining district with an equivalent study on young citizens in the city of Uppsala we find both similarities and differences as regards the spaces of position-takings. Both spaces are structured by oppositions regarding redistribution issues, environmental issues, cultural pluralism issues and trust in established institutions, but these different issues are of different importance in each geographical setting. In summary, the spaces of position-takings in Bergslagen and Uppsala represent two slightly different parts of a much wider space of position-takings. The positions and compositions of social attributes in each space relative to one another suggests that we are dealing with one space, the rural mining district, characterized by the working classes and one space, the city of Uppsala, characterized by the middle and upper middle classes, respectively.
