RIBEIRO, Luiz Cesar de Queiroz; KOSLINSKI, Mariane Campelo; ZUCCARELLI, Carolina  and  CHRISTOVAO, Ana Carolina. Urban challenges to educational opportunities access in Brazilian Metropolis. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2016, vol.37, n.134, pp.171-193. ISSN 0101-7330.

The present article systematizes the progress of the research on the patterns of social organization of the Brazilian Metropolis territory and its impacts on mechanisms of educational inequalities reproduction among children and adolescents/youth. It relies on results of a great number of empirical investigations carried out by the multidisciplinary research group, "Education and the City", part of the National Institute of Research and Technology (INCT) - "Observatory of the Metropolis" - CNPq/FAPERJ. Besides presenting the state of the art of the research on the relationship between the processes of residential segregation and segmentation and inequalities of access to educational structure of opportunities, the article also proposes considerations on the need of taking the urban territory into account as a transversal dimension of educational and city policies.

Keywords : Metropolitan regions; Residential segregation; Urban inequalities; Educational inequalities.
