Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the results of the village youth research through some basic social relationships, activities and the satisfaction of the needs in life: the village family, the village and school surroundings. The quality of education and the differences in the quality of education result from different factors, both individual and family ones, as well as the local environment (the educational environment) and a larger social context. The village youth is at the intersection between the village and the city, between agricultural work and the education for nonagricutlural vocations, between a new city way of life and the usual village one. The road to new working and life perspectives is open to the village youth through education, although the education opportunities are to some extent limited. The village youth, aware of their social position, tend to carry out their life goals by a high quality education: to acquire knowledge, to develop working and intellectual capacities, to apply the acquired knowledge in professional and everyday life; to contribute to the quality of one’s life, to understanding and to the development of social and cultural surroundings and to make up for the bad social and economical position in that way.
