    The goal of the institution of school is among others developing the ability to understand diversity, which means respecting human rights and also duties, education for tolerance, cooperation and learning about our own culture as well as learning about cultures of other nations (Krek in Metljak, 2011). Intercultural education is an important part of education in culturally heterogenous societies because it teaches us intercultural competencies. Researching the relationship of the participants of the intercultural education towards it is an important indicator for the further actions that we should take in this area. Students as well as employees in schools are the recipients of the intercultural education as well as its creators. Their personal experience of the process makes them the experts in this area. In my thesis I was researching the relationship of the students and the employed towards intercultural education and their approaches towards it in practice. As a sample I took employees on one side and the students (imigrant children as well as non-immigrant) on the other. The data was collected and processed with a qualitative approach. With the employees I performed half-structured individual interviews. I collected the data from the students (6-7 students of one class of the 4th grade, one class of the 6th grade and one class of the 7th grade plus the fourth focus group which consisted of only immigrant children from the classes mentioned beforehand) in a form of half structured focus groups. The sociograms were also made with all the students in the mentioned classes. The data was processed with qualitative analysis. Through the process of coding the text I created the categories of the higher ranks, which helped me with the interpretation of the collected data. I wanted to collect the first-hand data with which I can offer a piece in the mosaic for a better understanding of the field of intercultural education.
