The article presents the results of the study of satisfaction with the psycho-didactic component of the educational environment as an indicator of threats to the psychological health of schoolchildren in three groups: parents, teachers and heads of educational organizations. The total number of respondents in the sample was 16,808 people. Satisfaction with the educational environment in the following characteristics was studied: satisfaction with 1) the content of education, 2) the conditions of training, 3) the techniques of training and education used in educational organizations. A pairwise comparison of the results obtained in three groups of respondents revealed statistically significant differences in all characteristics. At the same time, parents showed the highest degree of satisfaction with the psycho-didactic component of the educational environment, which may be due to their insufficient involvement to the educational process and incomplete awareness of the real situation in the schools. Teachers and school heads are less satisfied with the psycho-didactic component of the educational environment and therefore see more risks and threats to the psychological health of children.

Keywords: satisfaction with educational environment, psychological health, subjects of pedagogical process, teachers, parents, heads of educational organizations

Column: Empirical research
