Is School Education Meaningful If It Does Not Lead Pupils to Seek Meaning?
The paper links the characteristic of postmodern European society, the changed demands on pupil performance in EU schools and the logotherapeutic view of the human being seeking the meaning of life. The author states the discrepancy between the economic and political pressure on school systems to prepare pupils for the future competitiveness of their countries in the global labour market and human effort to fill life with spiritual, nonmaterial values. She points out that this happens even though the spiritual and social climate of schools can be perceived and changed with self-evaluation tools.
