The investigation has been made in the frame of the project Multiple Choice Identity, looking at Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian youths’, in particular the attitude of pedagogical students towards the "others" (those understood to be "different"). We used actual statistics data analysis, interviews and questionnaires. We canvased the views of 500 students to find out the attitude of Latvian students with regards with those considered "other", their readiness to accept them, sand their wish to change and the attitude to the formulation „others”. Findings reveal that Latvian youths consider their attitude against the others not negative, as every person is different. Most respondents also agreed that violence is not the acceptable in the family nor in the society or the country in general.
