One of society’s quality development conditions is a good school. The good school involves a positive sense of self, students’ joy to learn and teachers’ wish to work in a creative manner, parents readiness arrive at the school. Human-pedagogical school theory (Gudjons, 2007) sees the school as an influential factor in the mutual relation of social culture, social economy and politics. It is impossible to define the school in the modern trendy society only on the basis of learning process because it is closely followed “by upbringing (as development of personality), compensation (as equalization of social behaviour deficit) and security function” (Gudjons, 2007).

Paldies emeritētajam zinātniekam Leonardam Žukovam!

Manā filoloģijas studiju laikā apgūstamo pedagoģijas kursu bija maz. Starp Latvijā veikto pedagoģisko pētījumu autoriem pavīdēja arī Leonards Žukovs, bet īpaši tam nepievērsu uzmanību – uzvārds tāds slāvisks, latviešu valodas un literatūras studentei droši vien maz derīga. Tādas domas bija grēks, ko apjautu stipri vēlāk. Lasīt vairāk "Paldies emeritētajam zinātniekam Leonardam Žukovam!"
