Xenophobia racism and education (Master thesis)

Τσιρώνη, Ελευθερία

In recent years Greek society is characterized by cultural pluralism. This fact is reflected at the same time in school environment, where there are plenty of different ethno-cultural students with a different cultural capital. The presence of different ethno-cultural students at school reveals several issues regarding racism and xenophobia, in which parents of Greek students are mainly involved. The prevailing conditions of economic and refuge crisis make these issues even more topical, leading us to look into the prevailing perception and behavior towards ethno-cultural diversity. More specifically, this paper investigates the views of 17 parents relating to the presence of different ethno-cultural students in Primary and Secondary School. Moreover, the study focuses in how the parents encounter with diversity of these students. We conducted qualitative study and the semi-structured interview as the most appropriate data collection method so as to have a more elaborate picture of parents' opinions and beliefs. The study reveals that parents express opinions that are against the values of equality and respect of diversity. The presence of different ethno-cultural students at schools is negatively perceived by parents who seem not to accept ethno-cultural diversity. The xenophobic perceptions and attitudes of the parents are quite obvious in both school and social frame, where immigrants and refugees are considered as a threat to the country and its citizens.
