BRITO, Rosemeire dos Santos. Black and poor boys in youth-adult education: A study on the relationship between masculinities and race. Educação. UNISINOS [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.224-233. ISSN 2177-6210.

This article presents the results of a study in a youth and adult education school in the city of São Paulo, in order to identify possible reasons for the major presence of black and poor boys in this type of education. The concepts of youth(s), masculinity(ies), race, racism and gender, designed in an articulated manner, guided the analysis. Semi-structured, collective and individual interviews were conducted with students consistent with this profile in order to access cultural symbols that possibly structured masculinity in its relationship with academic achievement. The analysis reveals that many shared gender meanings consistent with what was expected to be the most acceptable model of masculinity in schools. The study also finds that black boys shared a marginalized standard, depending on the contradictions involved in his corporeality, as a symbol and source of masculinity expression.
