Abstract:This research focused to what extent primary teachers observe known signals of Islamic radicalization from secondary education in Islamic children aged 10 till 12 in primary education, and how they respond to these signals. Investigating this subject provides insight into whether signals of Islamic radicalization can already appear at a younger age than 13 years and whether primary teachers find it necessary to take action. The occurrence of and response to these signals were examined among primary teachers (N = 20) through a questionnaire in which they indicated whether they have observed known signals of Islamic radicalization and if they perceive these signals to be radical or not. They also indicated the perceived importance of prevention of Islamic radicalization in primary schools and their general view of Islamic radicalization in primary education. The questionnaire was constructed with both multiple choice and open-ended questions through which descriptive statistics and inductive content analysis were performed that enabled answers to the research questions to be obtained. This research showed that it is hard to estimate the value of the known signals in primary education, and that implementing guidelines to prevent Islamic radicalization in primary education are perceived to be sufficient. Nevertheless, given the small sample it is recommended to conduct a follow-up investigation to draw firmer conclusions.
