Title: Imagined Frontiers: Educational Experiences And The Construction Of Plans For The Future By A Group Of Lower- And Middle-class Youngsters [fronteiras Imaginadas: Experiências Educativas E Construção Das Disposições Quanto Ao Futuro Por Jovens Dos Grupos Populares E Médios]

Abstract: This article is about the results of a study focusing on processes through which adolescents from different social groups build their plans for the future in terms of schools and jobs. From interviews with 14 youngsters and their families, it was possible to make it clear that these plans for the future are closely related to their families' (ascending or descending) social history, on the one hand, and on the other hand, to the structure of assets these families have, and that all this results in a clear adjustment between the plans and the chances to make them come true. This convergence is only threatened by schools' verdicts, which may impose different perceptions about the future than the ones built in family relations. The implications of these results will be discussed at the end of the text.
