Влияние просоциальных установок учителей на отношение учащихся к мигрантам в Италии и России
In recent decades, an intensive growth of migration flows has been observed in the world. This leads to new issues and requires changes in host societies. The field of education is particularly important, since the education of children from migrant families causes problems: their inclusion in educational institutions affects the migrants themselves, as well as the sphere of intercultural interaction between children from different backgrounds. In this regard, teachers’ attitudes play a special role. The purpose of this research is to study the relationship between teachers’ attitudes and those of primary school students (10-11 years old) towards migrants. The study was conducted in the form of a socio-psychological factorial experiment in two countries – Italy and Russia. The sample included 227 students. The study showed that the teachers’ pro-social attitudes increase the likeability of the newcomer-migrant, raise positive stereotypical characteristics of the newcomer-migrant’s group, and reduce negative stereotypical characteristics of the same group among the participating pupils In addition, the results showed that the prosocial attitudes of teachers foster a more personalized and more positive perception of the newcomermigrant among the group of peers.
