Study of value orientations and moral attitudes of modern youth: gender aspect
The formation of value orientations and moral attitudes of young people is taking place in the conditions of unstable socio-economic conditions in the world. The problem of studying the value orientations and moral attitudes of modern youth, taking into account its insufficient study in the context of a gender approach, acquires special significance. Purpose of the research: to theoretically identify and empirically test preferences in value orientations and moral attitudes of modern youth, taking into account their gender (gender). The research was carried out on the basis of content analysis of information sources; questionnaires; self-assessment, ranking, comparison; using methods of statistical data processing. 473 cadets and students (227 boys and 246 girls) were interviewed. As a result, the study of value orientations and moral attitudes of young men and women according to the ranks of the answers “very important” and “important” showed differences in the answers related to “raising children”, “love”, “physical improvement”, “self-confidence and inner harmony”. According to the sum of the ranks “not important”, “almost unimportant”, “absolutely unimportant” differences were observed in the answers associated with the values “creativity”, “travel and tourism”, “social activity”, “religion”. The opinions of young men and women were united by value orientations and moral attitudes: “happy family life”, “friendship”, “love”, “decency”, “responsibility”, “successful professional activity”, “career growth”, “high salary”. As a result, the awareness of the results obtained in the responses of young men and women in modern conditions is considered as the basis for the revival of the moral potential of society, necessitates their consideration in the implementation of the ideas of the gender component of the humanization of upbringing and the humanization of education.
