Public lecture by Paola Giuliano (UCLA Anderson School of Management) “Long-Term Orientation and Educational Performance”
Moderator: H. Lehmann (University of Bologna)
We use population-level matched administrative data from Florida education and birth records to study the role of Long-Term Orientation on the educational attainment of immigrant students living in the US. Controlling for the quality of schools and individual characteristics, we find that students from countries with long-term oriented attitudes perform better than students from cultures with less emphasis on the importance of delayed gratification. These students perform better in third grade reading and math tests, have larger test score gains over time, have fewer absences and disciplinary incidents, are less likely to repeat grades, and are more likely to graduate from high school in four years. In addition, they are more likely to enroll in advanced high school courses, especially in scientific subjects. Parents from long-term oriented cultures are more likely to secure better educational opportunities for their children. Long-term oriented students perform better when there is a large fraction of immigrants speaking the same language in their school. We validate these results using a sample of immigrant students living in 37 different destination countries.

Section “Russian Language in a Multilingual World”
The section focuses on the Russian language abroad, in Post-Soviet territories and in Russia.
One of the fast growing areas in Russian studies in the context of the ongoing destandartization is describing variations of the Russian language and defining their linguistic and social status. This topic is addressed from a number of perspectives – sociolinguistic, research and pedagogical. Special attention is paid to Russian in the situaition of bilingualism and Russian as L2 and heritage language. Another point for discussion is developing and using various tools in studying and teaching Russian.
