Le choix du BTS : Entre construction et encadrement des aspirations des bacheliers d'origine populaire

Abstract : Selections and professionalization are today presented as possible answers to the high failure and drop-out rates of undergraduates, in particular in vocational schools training specialized technicians. These vocational programs take in the bulk of the “new students” reaching higher education, i.e. students with modest social background, and students with a technological or vocational baccalauréat. By analyzing jointly the prior construction of these educational aspirations and the recruitment at the entrance of these programs, the paper shows how the educational system shapes these “elective” educational choices. Enrollment in these programs then appears as the product of the regulation of the educational ambitions of freshmen coming from modest social backgrounds on the one hand, and of their socially and educationally situated recruitment on the other.
