The present work attempts to understand the phenomenon of schooling longevity, while looking in the broadest possible context at the conditions making this choice probable in low-income families, then discussing some research results that investigated the relationship between family socializing practices and the establishment of a disposition capable of facilitating schooling survival in this social class. The analysis was made, based on data collected during seven in-depth interviews and school reports. The focus was directed towards the quality of parental authority, identifiable and towards personality traits suggestive of the above-mentioned disposition that could be recognized in the interviewed subjects/students, in-particular, the following: autonomy; considerations about the future. Regarding these research findings, this article then chooses to focus in on one of the seven cases, and elucidates some common themes.
