Abstract

This study explores connections between students’ and teachers' perceptions of a community- supportive climate in their school and students' societal orientation. Students' civic participation in and outside of school is interpreted here to signal societal orientation. The data used in this study consist of Finnish students' and teachers' answers to selected questions in their respective questionnaires in the ICCS 2016 survey. The data were analysed using a mixed effects model. The analysis suggests that teachers' perceptions of the elements of school climate have practically no connection with the variables relating to students' societal orientation. The connection between students' perceptions of the elements of school climate and their societal orientation was also generally weak, with the openness of classroom discussions being an exception. It seems that the openness of classroom discussions is a promising way to promote students' societal orientation. Differences between schools played only a minor role in explaining the results.
