Formalized encounters, earlier choices. Reflections on the Upper Secondary Schools Inquiry's view of the transition from school to work. This article discusses the consequences of the prooposals for an upper secondary education reform outlined in the inquiry reportFramtidsvägen(Path to the future). It focuses on the effects which proposals might have for the transition from school to work for young people of immigrant descent, taking into consideration the conditions specific to them during this process, such as various forms of direct or indirect discrmination. It is argued that the scope of discriminatory demand for manpower will be reduced if the relationship between upper secondary schools and the labour market is formailzed in the way proposed in the report. On the other hand, the proposal to separate students preparing for working life from those preparing for university education at an earlier stage during their secondary schooling might have adverse effects on the overall equality of education. Taking into account how class and ethincity intersect in the stratification processes that characterize both the education system and society at large, this may alos affect teh future opportunities of immigrant youth.
