Abstract [en]

 Th is text argue that the notion of divided habitus makes it possible to expand the understanding

of educational choices and strategies made by the upper secondary schoolteacher

students. Th e analogue of a distance, gap or tug between habitus and fi eld serve as a fruitful

illustration of how educational choices and participations can be more or less

complicated and full of confl ict, and in the end determine the presence or absence of educational

success. Th e social distance between habitus and the teacher education position

on the fi eld of higher education tend to aff ect the actual entrance and participation of the

individual student. A wide distance is more complicated and full of confl ict and failure than

a narrower one. By combining this to the individual achieved school-resources the selection

is becoming more complex but also with more consistency.
