Resumen:
Throughout Argentina´s education history, Secondary School has supported its policies on a bureaucratic institutional structure rationally oriented to serving interests of a minority. Today, social inclusion policies and compulsory secondary schooling are presented as an opportunity to democratize the management of educational institutions.This article presents a piece of empirical research whose main purpose is to analyze the decisions and actions taken by the directors of secondary school in state-run and private educational institutions in the city of La Plata, in order to apply the National Education Law (LEN) that sanctions compulsory secondary education.The methodology used in this paper is in line with socio-educational management studies oriented to analyze educational practices qualitatively from an institutional perspective. Thus, primary sources were consulted by means of in-depth interviews for data collection purposes.The analysis of the interviews was aimed at characterizing the different social inclusion strategies and management practices in secondary education through the following dimensions: I) the student´s role in the development of agreements and educational projects; II) retention strategies; III) the place given to students? socio-educational trajectories in educational proposals; and IV) the link between the institution and families
