Nylund, Mattias; Ledman, Kristina; Rosvall, Per-Åke; Rönnlund, Maria – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
Previous studies of citizenship preparation in upper secondary school, including studies on vocational programmes, have primarily focused on general subjects.

Loh, Chin Ee; Sun, Baoqi – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
The acquisition of cultural capital can only be understood in the light of the formation of habitus, including the socialisation process, and in the context of the field in which any such capital has value. Yet, the relation between cultural capital and habitus is seldom discussed in research. Drawing on the data from focus groups with 96 students…

Erlandson, Peter; Strandler, Ola; Karlsson, Mikael R. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
In this article, we use data from ethnography-inspired studies of eight Swedish schools. We describe and analyse how a number of neoliberal-inspired economic and political processes have (re)organised social and relational practices in local school settings. There is an increased focus on individuality in the everyday working lives of teachers,…

Lam, Beatrice Oi-yeung; Byun, Soo-yong; Lee, Moosung – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Since the mid-1990s, important education policy changes, such as the growth of Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) schools and the reform of the medium of instruction (MOI) policy, have been made in Hong Kong. Little is known about their impact on school segregation and educational inequality. We address this issue using six successive cycles of the…

Eriksen, Ingunn Marie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article addresses school resistance in ethnic minority girls. Girls' school opposition is mostly described as covert. If described as hostile, it is rarely understood in terms of femininity. Through psychosocial analyses of extensive fieldwork and interviews with students in a Norwegian upper-secondary school, the article describes an…

This article considers the understandings of space and place amongst a group of disaffected students within an institution that had been in a state of flux over a number of years.

Variyan, George – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article is based on a multi-site study of teachers in elite private schools in Australia. Teachers' accounts from this study bring nuance to the reasons one might short-handedly expect they have in working for these exclusive institutions. It is not that everyday motivations don't matter, for example, the financial compensations, the…

Mullen, Ann L.; Goyette, Kimberly A. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Less privileged students disproportionately aim low with their university applications and often fail to apply to the institutions that match their academic qualifications. Little attention, however, has been directed toward the converse phenomenon, that of aiming high. These kinds of applications are commonly called 'reaches,' meaning an…

Sortkaer, Bent – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This study draws on the concept of cultural capital to determine whether the cultural capital of students is related to their perceptions of classroom interactions, specifically teacher--student feedback practices. The analysis of new data in 'Feedback and Cultural Capital,' a Danish survey of feedback practices among 14-year-old and 15-year-old…

This article is concerned with the influences that are brought to bear on the design of school buildings and the effects that the design of these buildings have on those who teach and learn in them. The article also focuses on the ways in which design is altered in and through the practices of these occupants. We argue that there is a mutual…

Scharf, Jan; Hadjar, Andreas; Grecu, Alyssa – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Many approaches to explaining educational inequalities relate explicitly and implicitly to benefits of education, and rational choice theories in particular consider monetary benefits. We specify a concept of the value of education that allows for an empirical analysis of educational benefits, considering both monetary and non-monetary dimensions…
