Abstract

This article describes the impact of education in schools with a special educational center for cultural and linguistic adaptation of migrant children – "School of Russian Language" on Moscow adolescents. To identify the ethnic attitudes (the object of which is the phenomenon of "nationality" – in the current Russian public discourse is synonymous of "ethnicity") we used the "Scale of ethnic attitudes" (O. E. Khukhlaev, I. M. Kuznetsov, N. V. Tkachenko). Research was carried out on 511 participants, students of senior classes of secondary schools in Moscow and Armavir, schools with ethno-cultural component, "cadet" schools and students of two Moscow schools with a special unit for the training of migrants ("The School of Russian Language"). Results indicate that joint education with migrants (with a running special unit in the school – the "School of Russian Language") influences ethnic attitudes of the high-school students.
