Abstract: The present article is focused on a research of school choice in Bulgarian conditions that becomes possible through:

- the degree of parents' participation in a decision making;

- the students' and parents' expectations for a good start of children and the belief that the given school will guarantee a prosperity;

- the readiness of children to follow the choice where parents have a real impact.

All these determinants of school choice are influenced by students' as well as by parents' opinions and positions. Besides, they show how mutually penetrate the parental participation and the adoption of parents' values by which the different mechanisms of social closure operating and reproducing educational inequalities are revived.

In the present article the basic thesis is that economic and cultural priorities inherited by families are transformed into school priorities in the education process. Different sides of the elite schools in the years of transition are followed up and the main accent is put on their students.

The analysis is based on several author’ surveys carried out in the period 1996-2005 concerning the elite Bulgarian schools and its social actors. One of the basic conclusion is that elite school is a response to "social errand" for formation of an elite; these schools support continuity between parents and children, expressing themselves as an institutional mechanism of socialization which is nearest to family aspirations and habitus representing an investment transmitted within generations.

CONCEPTS OF IMAGE AND REPUTATION IN THE CONTEXT OF MODERN PRACTICES

Abstract: The concepts of image” and “reputation” are very often used as synonyms in everyday communication and in specialized literature. These terms are mixed up, replaced and identified with one another. But these should not be equaled. Reputation could not be mixed with image and vice versa. The image is based on the emotional impact. It is a unilateral external communication. Reputation is a rational perception. It is knowledge based concept that is acquired by multilateral communication (being of mediated or direct nature). It is almost impossible to build reputation without image required. On the other hand, image without constant process of improving reputation is often considered as bleak and vain endeavor.
