SENIOR PUPILS ABOUT RELIGIOUS SITUATION AND SPREAD OF RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM
The paper contains the main results of a sociological survey among pupils of 10 and 11 grades, living in the city of Semey (Semipalatinsk), East Kazakhstan region. The subject of the survey was the religiosity and religious extremism, and how high school students assess and perceive the level of distribution of these phenomena in Kazakhstan and in the city of Semey, in particular. In addition to these issues, sociologists managed to find out the state of things in the youth environment and a number of other aspects of social and spiritual life of young people. The important result of the survey was the data showing fairly high ethno-religious centrism among teenagers. This should be causing concern in the educational and training environment, where the students’ spiritual formation is taking place.
