SILVEIRA, Kátia Simone da Silva; ZAPPE, Jana Gonçalves; SANTOS, Samara Silva dos  e  DIAS, Ana Cristina Garcia. Expectations about Future: Failure and Expulsion from School in Adolescent Students and Law-offenders. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.2, pp. 1-16. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aimed to compare failure and expulsion from the school and expectations about the future in two groups of adolescents - students and law-offenders. Participants were 146 adolescents (73 students from public schools and 73 law-offenders) aged between 12 and 21 years (M=16.53, SD=1.56). Participants answered the Brazilian Youth Questionnaire, which assesses risk and protective factors for development. The data were analyzed through the statistical program Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), and descriptive and inferential analyses were performed. Results showed that the law-offender adolescents had lower education levels, experienced more school failure and expulsion, and had lower expectations regarding study and work. It is concluded that the school setting is an important environment for promoting healthy development during adolescence, being a crucial context for preventive and coping actions related to juvenile offense. Access and permanence of adolescents in school, as well as the establishment and maintenance of positive expectations for educational and professional future should be encouraged.
