Matziouri, Apostolia; Tsioumis, Konstantinos; Kyridis, Argyris
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v4 n1 Spr 2014
By this research--part only of the findings we expose here--we attempted to investigate the degree up to which the financial crisis that has stricken Greece the latest years and the ascension of the nationalist party "Golden Dawn" have affected the concepts of school principals on multicultural issues. Such a change in the profile of modern Greece would make a tradition of hospitality that's been cultivated for thousands of years in this land collapse. More specifically we felt out the school principals on questions dealing with the handling of multiculturalism, given the importance of the role they play on the educational scene and the application of educational policy. It came out that the preparedness for action of the educators is connected with their high education and continuous training and results from their sensitivity, their pedagogical identity, and the contact with the local society and the deep comprehension of the social needs. We estimate that this present task provided revealing evidence on various levels and constitutes a representative reflection of the tendencies that prevail in the sector of primary education. Finally, the corollaries apply to every single regional unity of the country with similar characteristics.
