Abstract
EN
This paper focuses on competition between upper‐middle class groups for access to the ‘best’ middle schools in the Parisian periphery. It analyzes the impact of social class on school choice with specific attention to ‘vertical’ but also to ‘horizontal’ differences between class fractions according to the volume and nature of their cultural, economic, and social capitals.
