BOSTAL, María Cecilia  and  GONZALEZ, Federico Martín. After School. Projects and social distances in secondary school graduates in La Plata, Argentina. Ultima décad. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.53, pp.103-124. ISSN 0718-2236.

In this article, we wonder about the ways the relationship between education and work go in the process of configuring projects of future in secondary school graduates from working class from La Plata, Argentina. From a qualitative methodological perspective, we made an in-depth analysis of 60 interviews made to 18-to-24-year-old men and women, as well as participant observation records. From here, we identified three graduate groups where this link takes differentiated paths, evidencing the persistence of limits and social distances linked to the processes of social inequality.

Keywords : youth; future; social inequality.
