Vulnerable youth in general are perceived as a group whose hierarchy of values differs from the whole of the population of young people. This article, based on our research, studies the immediate environment of young people and analyses the perception that families and teachers have of their values. The specific study takes as samples families that meet the criteria of vulnerability (n=393); non-vulnerable families (n=419) and teachers that teach different subjects to young people (n=516). The study analyses the degree of concern of these groups with respect to certain characteristics of young people which portray specific values or conducts that demonstrate those values. The results display a high concern of all groups for future employment and consumption of drugs and alcohol; whereas significant differences were revealed regarding concerns about the lack of values, lack of motivation, lack of life expectations, lack of responsibility, criminal behaviour and school failure.
The transition of young people into employment and training is a challenge in todayâ??s society, even among young people in situations of social vulnerability. In this project a study to review allocations on the study and the employment of vulnerable youth sample is presented. To do this, there has been an integrative research design that includes a quantitative and a qualitative study. For the former, an ad hoc questionnaire was applied to 493 vulnerable young people from all regions. For the second, interviews were conducted with nineteen young participants in social and educational programs aimed at improving employability and employment, developed by seven social institutions of Madrid and Andalusia. The results reveal the type of benefits attributed to the study and employment, and that there is a relationship between them.
The revista española de pedagogía is present in the leading Spanish and international databases, such as Journal Citation Reports (JCR), Scopus, JSTOR, etc. In fact, it was the first Spanish journal to appear in JCR, where 95 per cent of the journals in the Education and Educational Research category are only available in English. Consequently, since 2017, the revista española de pedagogía has also made all of its articles and book reviews available online in English.
All of the articles published in the journal since it was founded in 1943 are available on this website. Articles can be downloaded for free apart from ones from the previous year.
