differences in psychosocial adaptation, school achievement, ethnic identity, self-esteem, stress and language ability among three groups of students; indigenous Greek students, immigrant students and students from parents with mixed marriages
Summary:
During the last two decades immigration rates tend to be higher in Greece and as a result a growth of immigrant students attending Greek schools is registered. The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in psychosocial adaptation, school achievement, ethnic identity, self-esteem, stress and language ability among three groups of students; indigenous Greek students, immigrant students and students from parents with mixed marriages. The sample consisted of N=354 students attended junior high school (1st, 2nd and 3rd grade). A quantitative research study was conducted throughout the administration of self-report questionnaires. Results indicated that Greek adolescents had higher school scores than immigrants. Furthermore, boys had higher levels of self-esteem and self-perception than girls. Regarding language ability, this seemed to have positive effect on stress levels (i.e. lower stress levels was mediated by higher language ability) both in immigrants and adolescents from parents with mixed marriages. Finally, high self-esteem predicted lower stress levels over all groups of the sample. The results underscore the importance of multicultural awareness on behalf of the teachers and other stakeholders and the need for intervention programs in school with the involvement of teachers and parents.
