A number of school teachers in Tatarstan are not ready to teach children from other countries, and, what is more, do not find it necessary to change anything in methodology of education for migrant children. Scientific group from Institute of psychology and education conducted research of national and religious relations among Tatarstan teachers. The study showed that the attitude towards other confessions is quite good, but it`s not the same with other nationalities. Half of all respondents were intolerant of opposing views. That is a serious problem, as world migration processes require changes in the social processes and development of adaptation programs. The development of psychological and pedagogical program on teacher training is incomplete, because the is a number of additional studies is still to be conducted.
