MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this article is to present peculiarity of education which is the source of its weakness, but at the same time it represents its human face and its strength. This distinctive feature is that education is not fully controllable and cannot be, but the pursuit of being controllable is its inherent aspect. On the one hand, education is a planned process, systematically implemented on the basis of program and subject to continuous control. On the other hand, education is not and cannot be fully controllable, because educational processes related to teaching and upbringing - due to their specificity - are not fully foreseeable or controllable. The lack of control is primarily due to the fact that education is a human creation par excellence, based on interactions between living people. However, due to the very important social function of education, attempts are made to make it a measurable and controllable process.
