Abstract

This research’s goal was to investigate the implications of the role of contemporary schools for the constitution of the spirituality of high school students in the city of Sao Paulo, from the point of view of such students. Two instruments for producing and collecting data were used: 1) the application of a survey consisting of 26 closed questions and two open questions, to high school students from four schools, two of which were confessional schools and two public schools, and 2) discussion groups - conducted in two schools -, one of which was a confessional school and another one, a public school, seeking to portray the role of the school in the constitution of spirituality, according to the opinion of the young people who participated in the survey. For the analysis of the data collected from the responses to the survey we used the statistical program known as the Statistical Package of Social Sciences (SPSS), using the so-called Student's t test for descriptive analysis of frequencies, variation and inferential statistics of some questions. And our understanding of the discourse of the discussion groups was inspired by Prose Analysis. The results revealed that the role of the school in the constitution of spirituality is to: 1) provide environments in which the spiritual dimension can be explored; 2) offer psycho-emotional help to students; 3) allow teachers to be mediators for deeper knowledge and 4) help teachers develop a relationship with students based on humanizing practices.
