Matějů, Petr, Michael L. Smith, Josef Basl. 2008. „Rozdílné mechanismy – stejné nerovnosti. Změny v determinaci vzdělanostních aspirací mezi roky 1989 a 2003.“ Sociologický časopis / Czech Sociological Review 44 (2): 371–399. ISSN 0038-0288.

The paper addresses the changes in the role of social background in the formation of educational aspirations of adolescents during the social transformation in the Czech Republic. Using the data from surveys carried out in 1989 a 2003, the authors test the hypothesis that in 1989 the social origin had a strong direct effect on aspirations, while in 2003 its effect was primarily indirect. However, the overall effect remained very strong.
