Summary/Abstract: The most important in the education process are the pupil and the teacher. It is for the student that the school is created. It is for him that the teacher comes to this school – the second most important person in terms of importance. If he has no idea what he is going to do with his students in class, it will be a waste of time. The questions arise: what is the teacher like, what is the student like in the modern Polish school? Knowledge in school can be passed on to pupils or built together with them. You can limit yourself to facts and theories and use them to solve problems. You can educate in many ways. You can tell students to do something while standing in front of them, and you can (standing next to them and cheering them on) accompany them from idea to effect. You can make them remember what they were doing in school long after they left it. What is the state of the Polish school we learn from observations, a number of national studies and international comparisons.
