Abstract This paper gives voice to secondary school students' perceptions of an Australian senior education system and the educational and vocatinal possibilities associated with attendance at certain schools. Data are drawn from interviews conducted with students in their penultimate year of formal schooling and some parents from two demographically distincty school contexts - one, a state school situated in a low socioeconimic area, and an elite codeducational private school. The students from both contexts believed that the current Queensland education system processes for certification and selection were inequitable and that the achievement possibilities for students were heavily influenced by the school one attends. Through their discussions they highlighted cultural and social capital that substantiate the differences and promote the inequities. These perceptions seemed ot have an impact on the students' sense of power over their future.
