Abstract

IN ENGLISH: This paper discusses the contributions of variables commonly used within the status attainment and blocked opportunities models in addition to school context variables in predicting pupils’ aspirations for higher education prior to the transition to differentiated upper secondary education in Croatia (14–15 years). The findings, arising from a longitudinal design, indicate that the school context does not contribute to the explanation of pupils’ aspirations for higher education. In contrast, gender, parental educational aspirations for their child, maternal academic support, the pupil’s possession of a work desk, pupil grades and school satisfaction predict aspirations. Arguably, pupils who attend different schools but have similar individual characteristics will likely have similar aspirations for higher education. --------------- IN CROATIAN: U radu se razmatra doprinos različitih varijabli iz teorijskih modela postizanja društvenog statusa (engl. status attainment) i ograničenih mogućnosti (engl. blocked opportunities), te varijabli školskog konteksta, u predikciji aspiracija za studiranjem kod učenika na kraju osnovne škole. Nalazi proizišli iz longitudinalnog nacrta ukazuju kako školski kontekst (prosjek školskih ocjena na razini škole, veličina škole, veličina razrednih odjela i cijena nekretnina u četvrti u kojoj se škola nalazi) ne doprinosi objašnjenju učeničkih aspiracija za visoko obrazovanje. S druge strane, spol, roditeljske obrazovne aspiracije za njihovo dijete, majčinska akademska podrška, učenikovo posjedovanje vlastitog radnog stola, učeničke ocjene i zadovoljstvo školom su prediktori aspiracija. Učenici koji pohađaju različite škole ali dijele slične individualne karakteristike vjerojatno će imati i slične aspiracije za visoko obrazovanje.
