There are many definitions of youth and of young people. For instance, the youth can be considered as a transition from the state of dependence to the adult’s life responsibilities. This period is specially touched by establishment of objectives, aspirations and desires, in particular concerning education and the school. The objective of this working paper is to present some initial analyses regarding the youth and associations to educational system in Brazil. Firstly, we observed some population trends, including the relative size decrease of the population group aged 15 to 17, indicating that there are demographic opportunities to ameliorate the educational system. After that, we verified that school frequency did not increase in Brazil between 1997 and 2007, but that there was a decrease in age-grade distortion and an increase in formal education levels in the period.
