Abstract [en]

Secondary schools have for decades debated whether they promote social reproduction which is considered to generate the homogeneous student compositions. The gap between the academic programs and vocational education programs is considered to increase. What in recent years has appeared in research is that the gap is increasing most tend to be in the specific academic program, particularly in science. This paper's intention is to describe the science program at a local level and the pupils who were admitted to the science program autumn 2009 on the basis of an educational sociological perspective. The survey consisted of a census in which all students were given the opportunity to answer a questionnaire. The survey was compiled by the analytical program SPSS for capturing a multidimensional perspective of students' reasoning. The survey shows that students possess a lot of educational capital which had been examined from three aspects, however, in hierarchical order. Students who attend the scientific program, the municipality believes that the program is the program that gives students the best possible education in several respects. In particular, it appears that students think that the program prepares them for future higher studies paving the way for a future career.
