Youth At-Risk in High Schools. Tracking, Exclusion and Inequality: "Hearing Their Voice"

Lili Israel

Abstract

The research uses the qualitative paradigm, which presents reality as the respondents’ subjective perception. The research examines the topic of tracking and the contexts in the research participants’ reality of school life, with reference to the twelve years of their studies.The research method is ethnographic. The research seeks to understand and explain the phenomenon of tracking and what is derived from it in the students’ scholastic life and as it occurs. The researcher has perceptions that constitute a conceptual network that contributes to the empirical outlook. The ideological approach in ethnography is the desire to understand the other from unmediated closeness, listening, and observation, entry into the field, creation of a relationship with people, choice of the categories, in-depth conversations, and mapping of the relationships. Ethnography helps to understand what influences the social structures in the aspects of policy, economy, culture, and education as well as structures that preserve or create social inequality. This research approach enabled the researcher to interpret and decode social situations on the topic of tracking and exclusion. Ethnographic research addresses the contexts created in the encounter between the researcher and the research respondents in the researched field. The interviewees’ experiences, the language, the voice, their expressions and explanations and examples about the phenomena are the tool of analysis according to the theoretical system of concepts.
