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. Potential and actual roles of vocational subjects in this context have received little attention, so we have little knowledge of what is likely a significant part of the citizenship…

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…

Francis, Becky; Craig, Nicole; Hodgen, Jeremy; Taylor, Becky; Tereshchenko, Antonina; Connolly, Paul; Archer, Louise – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
The impact of self-fulfilling prophecy in education, and of attainment grouping on pupil self-perception, remain topics of longstanding debate, with important consequences for social in/justice. Focusing on self-confidence, this article draws on survey responses from 9,059 12-13 year olds who were tracked by subject ('setting'). They provided…

Ljunggren, Jørn; Orupabo, Julia – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
While the scholarly work on the second generation of immigrants has scrutinised both high educational achievers and marginalised groups, less attention has been paid to those in between and their aspirations. In this article, we draw on interviews with 35 adolescents pursuing vocational education in Norway. Our analysis takes as its point of…

Lorenz, Georg; Boda, Zsófia; Salikutluk, Zerrin; Jansen, Malte – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
Educational expectations are a key predictor of educational attainment. Throughout adolescence, friends increasingly function as 'significant others' and, thus, can affect the development of these expectations. Although scholars often interpret the clustering of students with similar expectations within friendship networks as the outcome of peer…

Sciffer, Michael G.; Perry, Laura B.; McConney, Andrew – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
School socio-economic compositional (SEC) effects have been influential in educational research predicting a range of outcomes and influencing public policy. However, some recent studies have challenged the veracity of SEC effects when applying residualised-change and fixed effects models and simulating potential measurement errors in hierarchical…

Ralph, Thomas; Levinson, Martin – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
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. The article explores ways in which students are positioned by institutions into specific spaces, ways in which they use those spaces to challenge authority and ways in…

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…

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…

Sellers, Chelsea – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
The benefits of reading for pleasure and positive reader identities have been well established in previous research. However, much discussion regarding young people's reading is underpinned by a discourse of deficit, placing emphasis on what young people should be reading. In an attempt to move away from this discourse, this article considers…

Building on the sociological work by Lareau, this study examined the association between students' socioeconomic background, prior achievement and the perception of teacher support within the classroom. We expected that students from higher socioeconomic backgrounds would be more critical about the support they receive in the classroom and rate…
