    Abstract

    The paper will provide an outline of an ongoing research project on young student’s pursuit of upward social mobility in public schools. The goal of the project is to understand better what is at stake among middle school students from nonacademic families when social mobility by way of schooling is a chosen perspective. Further, the goal is to specify the support this specific group of students needs if schools are going to succeed in maintaining aspirations towards an educational trajectory.
