Abstract
Data from the Social Progress Imperative 2017 Summit show that Indonesia was ranked 117 out of 128 countries in the category of intolerance. The data show that Indonesia has a poor attitude toward diversity and implicitly shows that the younger generation must face the challenge of intolerance. To teach tolerance in schools and show youngsters how to be able to respond to differences, it is necessary to pay attention to the right developmental phase to teach them. Children in the concrete operational stage can classify objects, orders, and solve problems in a concrete and systematic way, based on what is obtained from their environment. Based on these characteristics, it is possible to teach tolerance to children in the concrete operational stage. Tolerance is considered a virtue moral, and children can respond to diversity more wisely if they have a tolerant attitude. This study aims to determine whether there was a relationship between tolerance and attitude toward difference in children in the concrete operational stage. The researchers used a purposive sampling with an accidental sampling technique. The results indicated a positive relationship between tolerance and attitude toward diversity. Tolerance is a value that is not obtained naturally but obtained through a process of socialization from family, school, and playmates. The more positive their environment was in responding to differences, the child will develop positive values ​​for differences to be more tolerant and vice versa. The weakness of this study was the lack of control over homogeneous conditions in the population. Suggestions from this research are for schools and the elements in it to optimize programs and policies with tolerance.
