MELO, Luciano Plez de  and  SALLES, Leila Maria Ferreira. Leisure, neighborhood and school: the testimony of young protagonists of violence. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.1, pp.12-22.  Epub June 10, 2019. ISSN 1981-2582.

This paper aims to understand the ways of social inclusion of young protagonists of violence in their everyday living spaces such as the neighborhood, areas of leisure and the school. Focal interviews were conducted with two groups of young people enrolled in two public schools located in impoverished urban suburbs of a city in the interior of São Paulo and by the schools themselves, considered to be protagonists of violence. The discursive regularities present in the testimonies were analyzed. The testimonies point out that the social insertion methods of the youngsters are marked by the accentuated signs of housing in a set of neighborhoods that, according to the 2010 Census, account for 7% of the population of the municipality, and that such marks enter all the places of daily stay, including the school. Young people, however, appear to disregard the external determinations that shape the characteristics of the places they frequent. It hinders the establishment of links that favor the aggregation and resistance to situations in which they live.

Keywords : Youth; Social inclusion; School.
