Opis IN ENGLISH: This paper aims to explore social inequalities in school achievement and educational decision-making of the final-year students of secondary schools in the City of Zagreb and Zagreb County, Croatia (N = 534). The theoretical framework of the paper was Bourdieu’s theory of cultural and social reproduction (1977a). The main objectives were an analysis of the association between the students’ cultural capital and their school achievement and analyses of the predictive power of the cultural capital theory in the context of educational decisions in the transition to tertiary education. In the analysis of school achievement, sequential multiple regression analysis was used, while in the analyses of educational decisions logistic regression analyses were performed (binary and multinomial logistic regression). The results indicated that cultural capital had statistically significant correlation with school performance. Among the cultural capital indicators, statistically significant predictors of the probability of the intention to enrol into vocational higher education were the material dimension of cultural capital and naturalness of higher education aspirations of students. For the prediction of the probability of intention to enrol in university, significant predictors were embodied cultural capital, the naturalness of higher education aspirations of students, and father’s educational level. The study results on a selected sample of graduates tend to support Bourdieu’s theory of cultural reproduction through education. --------------- IN CROATIAN: Cilj ovog rada je istražiti društvene nejednakosti u školskom uspjehu i donošenju obrazovnih odluka kod učenika završnih razreda srednjih škola u gradu Zagrebu i Zagrebačkoj županiji (N=534). Teorijski okvir rada čini Bourdieuova teorija kulturne i društvene reprodukcije (1977a). Glavni ciljevi bili su analiza povezanosti kulturnog kapitala učenika i njihovog školskog uspjeha te analiza prediktivne moći teorije kulturnog kapitala u kontekstu donošenja obrazovnih odluka pri prijelazu u tercijarno obrazovanje. U analizi školskog uspjeha korištena je sekvencijalna multipla regresijska analiza, dok su se kod analize obrazovnih odluka koristile logističke regresije (binarna i multinomijska logistička regresija). Rezultati su pokazali da je kulturni kapital statistički značajno povezan sa školskim uspjehom. Od indikatora kulturnog kapitala, statistički značajni prediktori vjerojatnosti namjere upisa veleučilišta bili su materijalna dimenzija kulturnog kapitala i podrazumijevanje upisa studija. Za predviđanje vjerojatnosti namjere upisa na sveučilište, značajni prediktori bili su utjelovljeni kulturni kapital, podrazumijevanje upisa studija i obrazovanje oca. Rezultati istraživanja na odabranom uzorku maturanata podržavaju Bourdieuovu teoriju kulturne reprodukcije putem obrazovanja.
