Неприязненные отношения в подростковой среде: с чем связано их возникновение
This study investigates whether antipathy in the middle-school classroom has anything to do with ethnic status, migration history or academic achievements. The objective of this study is to examine whether or not these criteria lead adolescents to exclude certain peers from their social circle. The data for analysis was collected during a survey of 3703 students (with an average age of 15) from 50 schools in the Moscow region. The results show that students do not avoid relationships with ethnic minority peers, and they usually tend not to be concerned by when their classmates moved into their city. Meanwhile low academic performance of students is a significant factor in the emergence of negative relations.
