Abstract

The article looks into the theoretical assumptions nowadays tinged to the common conviction that investment in education is a fundamental lever against unemployment. The reflection is conducted considering Italian young unemployment as empirical field of analysis. The sociological perspective here adopted permits to put in light the complexity of the linkage between education and work. This linkage, in fact, is neither linear nor sure, for is conditioned by social factors. The investment in education isn’t a guarantee against unemployment neither to find an adequate job comparing to the educational level reached, revealing itself to be an important factor of social segmentation and stratification.
