The purpose of the research was to study and diagnose tolerance in children of secondary school age, as well as to develop and implement programs aimed at the formation of tolerance in adolescents. In compliance with the goal, the following methods have been selected: theoretical (study and analysis of psycho-pedagogical and methodological literature on the study, comparison, generalization), empirical (ascertaining, forming, and control experiment), diagnostic techniques "Properties of a tolerant person", "Tolerant personality traits", "Methods of tolerant behavior diagnosis".
