Languages of publication
W świadomości społecznej istnieje przekonanie, że to wykształcenie uzyskane na poziomie wyższym decyduje o sukcesie społeczno-zawodowym jednostki. Trudno temu zaprzeczać, jednakże wiele badań eksponuje fakt, że to szkoła średnia, a w szczególności liceum, jest decydująca (obok czynnika rodzinnego) w kształtowaniu kapitału kulturowego jednostki i jej „potencjału” społecznego. Trudno jest przecenić w tym zakresie, zarówno w kontekście historycznym, jak i współcześnie, rolę elitarnych szkoł licealnych. W artykule przedstawiono rolę elitarnych liceów francuskich w formowaniu elit we Francji.
It is a common social conviction that higher education decides of an individual’s socioprofessional success. It difficult to object to this statement. However, many studies expose the fact that secondary school decides (beside the family factor) of the formation of an individual’s cultural capital, and its social ‘potential’. It is difficult to overrate the role of elite secondary schools, either in historical context or contemporarily. The authors present the role of elite French grandes ecoles in the formation of elites in France.
