Čakovská, Hana ; Hasman, Jiří (advisor) ; Kostelecká, Yvona (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to quantitatively assess the position of pupils of foreign origin in schools. This is analysed through the magnitude of the differences in learning outcomes between immigrant pupils and native pupils in eight different education systems. The main aim is to capture the heterogeneity between the selected countries, which were chosen because of differences in integration strategies, the amount of funding directed to education and the organisation of education systems. For the purpose of the analysis, the international database of the PISA survey was used with 49 687 respondents. The effect of foreign origin is analysed together with other determinants in order to reveal its relevance in explaining students' performance in school. The author is not aware of any differences in the academic performance of immigrant pupils and native-born pupils have been captured in other similar comparative research. Based on the literature, the factors were grouped into three levels - pupil, school and country levels. For this purpose, a multilevel linear model is used, which is able to purge the effect of school level from the role of individual characteristics. The influence of immigrant background has been demonstrated, but is influenced by other factors such as economic, social and cultural...

Krajcová, Romana ; Kostelecká, Yvona (advisor) ; Komárková, Tereza (referee)

The qualitative approach was used for the research; data was collected by in- depth semi-structured interviews and analysed using thematic analyses. Results of the research show us main motives that lead Czech parents to choice of unschooling as well as supportive factors that motivate them continue with it. The main reasons for unschooling educational choice were for example delimiting against school, child's needs and interests, and child's will. Family well-being and child's happiness turn out to be the strongest keeping factors. Identified motives were set into the concept of self-efficacy which shows the strong connection of those two concepts in researched area. Analysis indicates significant development trend to radicalization of opinions and educational approach connected with longer unschooling practise....

The main goal of this work is to find out whether there are regional differences in the perception of immigrants by students of the secondary schools in the Czech Republic and to find out which factors can affect the perception of immigrants and their regional differentiation. Considering the actual situation in the world, the topic of this thesis is very up-to-date. It is necessary to be carefully prepared for the growth of the international migration to ensure smoother integration of migrants in the concerned countries. Many researches are addressing the international comparison of countries in the perspective of immigrants, but monitoring of national differences is really important and can tell us a lot about where the main causes of the problems are. Based on this opinion, I was studying the relationship of Czech society with immigrants. As a sample, I used students of high schools and vocational schools. As a main theoretical concept I choose contact hypothesis by Gordon Allport. Hypothesis is based on the assumption, that to prevent prejudice and conflicts between different groups of...
