Abstract The main question in this article is whether new cosmopolitan forms of power, on the one hand, and established forms of power, on the other hand, may lead households to make different educational choices for their children. Two types of Dutch secondary education are compared: internationalized education in which English and Dutch are the languages of instruction versus traditional elite schools, the classical gymnasiums. It is claimed that the coexistence of both school types goes together with a diverging process of social reproduction between an upwardly cosmopolitan fraction and an established fraction of the Dutch upper middle class.
