Elite education as a label for the whole of Hungarian higher education is mostly associated nostalgically or with a critical tone to the past. It is contrasted with the mass higher education that have developed after the democratic changes in Hungary. A minority of youth generations entered to tertiary education through harsh competition in the past, to have less intensive selection after in their university studies. They saw clear carrier routes to take their place in professional networks, leading circles of social institutions. Graduates took part in the general social-political processes, while the least controllable critiques of the existing regime came from this same elite. Today much greater portions of youth generations start their tertiary education. Carrier paths became more flexible, graduates don't have fixed roles in enterprises or other institutions, the public activity of this elite is not necessarily in the centre of public discourse. One may ask whether past social and public influence, trend setting power have remained in the hand of this generally recruited elite. What are the opportunities on the other hand to have experience in cultural, sport activities or public discourse for a student today added to their professional education?
Ferenc Gazsó assesses the public roles of graduates in changing political regimes. Proposes the concept of cognitive socialization to show possible influences of higher education on the diverse, non-political interests and motivation of students. The roundtable discussion carries these original thoughts further, touching upon the changes and development of political attitudes of students, the forms of their self-government, using new communication technologies in organizing collective action, and the role of student unions in preparing their activists for political-public carriers.
Among the articles in focus, Rita Csőzik explores the chances of student public activities, raising the question if the youth would have become indeed apolitical. The lifestyle, the relationship between leisure activities and social value systems is analysed by Veronika Bocsi. Kovács Klára focuses on sport activities using the same conceptual framework. In a non-conventional way, Ildikó Szabó explained student political socialization on the guest pages by answering to interview questions. Among the workshop papers Lilla Koltói continues the analyses of perceived competency, László Kiss furthers research by analysing the entrance strategies of those from underdeveloped regions.
This double issue of Higher Education in Hungary paints a colorful picture of the non-professional components of student life and elite carrier developments. We hope to strengthen research focus on an interesting but under researched topic.
