Debts To Be Paid In 21st Century Hungarian Education


  • Ágnes N. Tóth



The practice of pedagogy in the third millennium is struggling to overcome shortcomings that have been reiterated by many, ones that still appear to be insurmountable in spite of tremendous efforts made to remedy them, including issues such as the efficiency of schools, the transparency of education, the shortcomings of professional pedagogy, the relations network of schools and their users, early drop-outs and dealing with social disadvantages. Are these anomalies still outstanding debts for contemporary pedagogy to pay?The objective of this study is to put Hungarian efforts in education in a European context just over a decade after EU accession and to identify areas requiring immediate action and to analyse such areas from social, economic and pedagogical aspects. We wish to highlight problem areas to draw the attention of not only the theoretical and practicing experts in the international pedagogy community but also the attention of decision-makers to these issues, thus taking a step closer to tackling these problems.
