Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The project concerns the youth of Denmark and their process of choosing a further education after finishing public school. It focuses specifically on the danish high school students and their reason for prioritizing high school rather than alternative educations. We examined what affects the students and their decisions, and have come to discover that an ambivalent condition between the selection of opportunities raised by the cultural liberation of the postmodern society, and the liberation of the students due to their habitus and capitals, is a central conflict in the youth culture. The project is elaborated in the light of 3 qualitative interviews based on Steiner Kvale's methods about the 7 levels of an interview, which are analyzed by using the theories of Pierre Bourdieu and Thomas Ziehe. We have come to the conclusion that the cultural background, the parents and the friends have a rather huge impact on the decision made by the students.
