If we discuss about people’s we can find differences induced by country, region, cultural area, religion, ethnic background or age. Based on their value’s homogeneity the young people, especially adolescents or high-school students, represent a separate social category. Our paper intends to answer to the next question: what are the factors that influence mostly the high-school pupil’s values and aspirations (based on Rokeach axiological inventory)? Starting from an empirical research - Barometer of high-school student’s values and aspirations - realized in counties like Iasi, Bacau, Botosani si Focsani between 2007 and 2010 our article measure the degree in which the family, the social class and/or the high-schools affiliation represent predictors for their values. The hypothesis we’ll test within this article is that high-school is more relevant than family or social class in predicting pupils’ values. Or, simply formulated the high-schools produce a greater value uniformization.
