International Mindedness of Native Students as a Function of the Type of School Attended and Gender: The Qatari Case
Baker, Ahmad M.; Kanan, Hana M.
Journal of Research in International Education, v4 n3 p333-349 2005
The international mindedness of native Qatari students attending public, magnet and international schools was examined on three domains: awareness of other cultures, universal affiliation and cultural tolerance. The findings showed that although Qatari students scored high on international mindedness in general, no significant differences were detected between the groups attributable to type of school, with the exception that students attending international schools scored higher than their cohorts on awareness of other cultures. Female students scored significantly higher than their male peers on all three domains of international mindedness. The results were discussed in terms of the influence international schools exert on international mindedness of students. (Contains 3 tables.)
