The traditional classical education, which basically takes care of the previous knowledge transmission to future generations, is being replaced with a new understanding, whose aim is to guarantee preparation for life in the future society. However, it does not keep us away from studying different conformities to natural laws which promote definite outcomes of education processes. Teachers play an important role in the societyʼs development. The teacherʼs profession becomes more and more complicated.
