The school life of the adolescent in conflict with the Law is characterized, in general, by negative indicators, such as low academic performance, sanctions, disapprovals, delay and evasion. However, Little is known about how the adolescent builds his relationships with the school, its agents and how adolescents perceive their own schooling history. Hereupon, Bazon, Silva and Ferrari reported a study, in which two trajetories patterns about the schooling experience of adolescentes in conflict with the law were identified and described. With reference to this study, the project research propose aims to (1) describe the schooling of adolescents in conflict with the law, (2) understand their school experience, based on the educational process lived by them, (3) see how the schooling process is associated with the infraction behavior production. In part, the proposed research aims to replicate the study described in the publication of Bazon, Silva and Ferrari, in order to identify if the two patterns of trajectories described by the authors continue to be verified or if there are changes that must be made to the trajectories described, based on new data. It also seeks to understand how variables related to school experience of the adolescent may have participated in the construction of the involvement with the offense practice, by the perception of the adolescents themselves. The study will be of qualitative nature, adopting a biographical approach. Data will be collected through interviews with the estimated number of 6 to 10 young offenders and, in a complementary way, with the school documentation existing available, related to these adolescents. For the analysis, will appeal content analysis, treating, first, the data for each of the adolescents in a particular way. Following, being guided by the parameters related on studies of multiple cases, will be seek similarities and differences, in order to verify the school trajectories related on the sample studied. The results obtained will be compared to those presented in the Bazon, Silva and Ferrari study.
