The map presented in this paper depicts relations between different programmes and branches at different upper secondary schools in the Stockholm area. Each educational alternative is characterised by the social recruitment of its pupils, that is by its shares of sons and daughters of civil engineers, lawyers, unskilled workers in the production, and so on. The social classi- fication comprises 34 such social groups. One main finding is that besides the well known social hierarchy significant "horizontal" distances separate the educational alternatives. In particular there is a major “horizontal” polarity separating schools, programmes and branches dominated by groups that posses more cultural than economic capital from those dominated by groups equipped with more economic than cultural capital. There is thus a divide between educational alternatives preferred by children of medical doctors or university teachers on the one hand and by owners and managers of private companies on the other hand. At a some- what lower societal level this polarity separates for example children of schoolteachers or librarians from children of white collar company employees. The growing diversity during the1990’s in the social recruitment to different kinds of upper secondary education did mainly imply sharpened “horizontal” divisions. As a consequence different types of elites gained better opportunities to find a trajectory through the educational system that suited their own offspring.
