Considering the interrelation between people's cultural education and how they use their daily time, this article highlights the relevance of leisure time in human development. Especially when we refer to the group of young people who, given the social and familial reality that has been imposed to them, feels limitations in what concerns the satisfaction of their basic needs, among them enjoying a leisure time that favors their quality of life. In this sense, we present some results of a research project carried out on Spanish territory and whose main objective was to learn and interpret how time in school is reflected in students' socialization process, as well as how they configure leisure time. The data were obtained by a questionnaire designed ad hoc that was applied to a sample of 3.306 youth, from 12 to 17 years, who attended Secundary Education (ESO)³ in Spanish High Schools in the academic year of 2010-2011. Our intention is to know how students spend their time, with two purposes: reflecting about the extent to which their activities favor the acquisition of cultural learning cultural, and whether there is any significant relationship between age and type of recreational activities they undertake.
