Rural youth: aspirations and tensions in the transition to secondary education

 
Macarena Hernández and Dagmar Raczynski
.Abstract

In Chile, transition between primary and secondary education has been identified as a critical event of educational trajectories, which affects more negatively the socially disadvantaged and rural students. Deepening into this topic, this paper focuses on the transition to secondary education and the educational trajectories of students in rural localities. Based on a research conducted in 2011 in the region of La Araucanía, the text explores the experiences of young people and their families in the transition to secondary school, emphasizing their aspirations, their images about the local provision, their integration into the new schools, and the various difficulties they face in this process. The findings suggest that students have high aspirations and a favorable disposition towards secondary education. However, factors such as the lack of financial resources, the poor support and orientations from schools during the transition, the deficit of information handled by students and their families and the generalized perceptions of the low quality of rural primary and secondary education, appear as obstacles and barriers to achieve the declared desires and dreams.
