Justicia Social en la Escuela: Representaciones de Estudiantes de Educación Secundaria y Desafíos para la Formación del Profesorado
Social Justice at the School: Secondary Students’ Representations and Challenges for Teacher Education
This article presents the results of a research study, which aims knowing the representation of social justice at the school, by high school students, based on their school experience and implications for teacher training. A qualitative research was conducted among three emblematic secondary schools in Santiago de Chile; we applied individual and group interviews to 50 students involved with student unions and collectives, which have a record of high participation in street rallies between 2011 and 2015. Data were analysed using category content analysis. We found that participation is the social justice representation’s core; peripheral contents are equality, acceptance of diversity, responsibility and absence of social justice.
