Abstract [en]

Drawing on the case of upper secondary education in Stockholm, thisarticle analyses school-based responses to a superimposed marketand how this is related to social stratification. Furthermore, schools’and pupils’ encounters with the market are analysed in relation toBourdieu’s concepts of field, capital and strategy. Methodologically,the quantitative method of correspondence analysis is combinedwith semi-structured interviews with senior administrative officersand principals. Analysis shows how the overarching structure ofthis particular field – a historically pre-existing social order of uppersecondary education in Stockholm – is related to the complex set ofstrategies that schools develop in the school market. Schools locatedat the elite pole of the field, serving the educational needs of a smallminority of either the wealthy or the culturally rich upper middleclass, are less affected by marketization. In the most populous socialmid-tier of the field, schools are more likely to turn education into amass-produced commodity, while schools at the socially dominatedpole, without a competitive product, are more exposed to the market’sstratifying impact.
