Youth’s values and social aspirations
AbstractIf we discuss about people’s we can find differences induced by country, region, cultural area, religion, ethnic background or age. Based on their value’s homogeneity the young people, especially adolescents or high-school students, represent a separate social category. Our paper intends to answer to the next question: what are the factors that influence mostly the high-school pupil’s values and aspirations (based on Rokeach axiological inventory)? Starting from an empirical research - Barometer of high-school student’s values and aspirations - realized in counties like Iasi, Bacau, Botosani si Focsani between 2007 and 2010 our article measure the degree in which the family, the social class and/or the high-schools affiliation represent predictors for their values. The hypothesis we’ll test within this article is that high-school is more relevant than family or social class in predicting pupils’ values. Or, simply formulated the high-schools produce a greater value uniformization.
