Summary/Abstract: Fostering a value system in line with the universal values of children and adolescents constitutes a globally significant challenge for parents and teachers alike. Teachers play a crucial part in the education process. The teacher or tutor should not reduce his or her role to simply spreading knowledge on moral values and the standards of conduct stemming from them, but above all they should foster certain moral sensitivity in their students by acting as an example of moral conduct. Responsibility is one of the universal values which deserves close attention. The aim of this article is to direct attention to this axiological category, which represents one of many universal values. The article includes the author's own research findings, which illustrate the educational reality in terms of teachers' views on the subject of responsibility.
