  1. Contents and goals:

The main purpose of the symposium is to be a part of a good school system that guides young people and gives them advice on how to discover and develop their interests, needs and abilities. The development and lifelong learning of young participants in the educational system from kindergarten to college are at the heart of the discussion.

The civil society should also contribute to the development of a better school system. Initially, by referring to the weaknesses and peculiarities of the system that the state is unable to notice. The potential impact on non-governmental organizations, associations, institutions, and lastly of taxpayers on the public school system, is the field of research, the main idea and consideration of the symposium.

Prospects and presentations of domestic and foreign plenary specialists, lecturers and many practices of good experiences, and teachers on all levels of the school system convinced us for the tenth time over that we need to organize yet another new international conference.

Our symposium in autumn will be even more interesting and up-to-date. We are discussing knowledge – what it really means and how it can be obtained; teachers attach too much importance to theoretical knowledge and not enough or even insufficient amount to practical, everyday skills and competences, even though current generations of pupils and students demand appropriate expertise in many different fields of knowledge throughout different modern information channels. For example, Wikipedia. Current teaching practices should also be presented, for e.g. good practices. One part in particular is dedicated to gender equality – how far are we in the school system and society in general.
