    Default about "those"

    "it seems that more effort should be made to develop students' positive attitudes towards those around them."

    what i want to ask is, what is the "those" in the sentence above equivalent to ?

    is that equivalent to "those people who are" ??

    thank you for time ^^

    It is equivalent to "those students who are"

    In such cases, you usually have the right to omit the congunction e.g.

    The man whom I met = The man I met

    It doesn't have to be resticted to students- it coulkd include other people. In an educational context, staff would be included in this, IMO.
