Factors Shaping the Political Culture of Modern Schoolchildren

In recent years, the younger generation of schoolchildren in Russia has begun to more actively monitor the political situation, and even take part in opposition rallies. In the final qualifying work, the factors shaping the political culture of modern schoolchildren (students in grades 9-11) are investigated.

The research problem is caused by the contradiction between the given requirements of the Federal State Educational Standards LLC, formulated in the so-called “graduate school portrait” and the real interest and political education of modern high school students. The purpose of the study: to identify and analyze the factors contributing to the formation of the political culture of schoolchildren (high school students). Social constructivism is used as the methodology of our research. In the framework of this approach, the ways and mechanisms by which schoolchildren construct their reality are studied. The theoretical conclusions are confirmed by empirical research methods, such as questioning students in grades 9–11 of various types of educational institutions (lyceum, gymnasium, school) in Novokuznetsk, Kemerovo Region, testing for knowledge of the main issues about the political structure of the Russian Federation.

As a result of the study, we came to the following conclusions: the interest of modern high school students in political life is unstable, and depends largely on a specific political event; only a third of schoolchildren note the influence of the family on their political views, and share the views of parents about politics; reducing the role of schools as a factor in the formation of political culture is justified, since modern schoolchildren live in an open information society, in which there are various sources of information about politics; An important stage of political socialization is in high school education.

Keywords: political culture of students, political socialization, factors of formation of political culture.
