Abstract:


The main purpose of this article is to present the secondary education students’ points of view regarding issues that are related to their everyday reality. A link to their political socialization is attempted. At the same time, the influence of independent variables is examined, like "sex", "urbanity", "performance" and "parents’ occupation". The final conclusion shows that even though the majority of students do not express intense negative feelings about different origin, sex and religion, a tendency is at sight, mainly by male students. This conclusion is also compared with the findings of the survey “EUROPE ON THE EDGE”, regarding issues of difference and democratic values.
