(Title in Polish - 'Uczyc sie demokracji. Wykorzystane i niewykorzystane szanse udzialu mlodziezy w szkolnej demokracji na przykladzie wybranych szkól srednich'), The article partly presents the results of studies conducted among this year's secondary school graduates from Zielona Góra. The excerpts presented in the article are a part of a wider research project entitled School Youth towards Democracy and Future. The purpose of the inquiries is to determine whether there are differences in experiencing school democracy between the youth from 'exclusive' Zielona Góra secondary schools and their peers from other schools and, if so, to what extent. This 'exclusive character' of schools was arbitrarily defined by the authors based on the state wide ranking of upper secondary schools, conducted on the basis of students' results, which was featured in a January 2007 issue of the 'Rzeczpospolita' newspaper. Two schools that were ranked highest among Zielona Góra upper secondary schools were E. Dembowski Secondary School No. 1 (18th place) and K. Kieslowski Secondary School No. 5 (58th place). In the Lubuskie province these occupy respectively the second and the sixth place, while in Zielona Góra they are two leading schools.
