Summary/Abstract: Growing society disfunction and system value crisis, phenomena which are more and more present in society in Bosnia and Herzegovina, influence to role and function of educational system, primarily schools. In these circumstances school is trying to teach children skills which will help them to succeed in life. However, current political, economic and social situation in society, offers to children completely different values, answers and messages, opposite to those which they learn in school. System of values offered to them in schools is opposite to system of values which is created under influence of many other factors (family disfunctionalty, media influence, influence of people they meet outside), and it can be recognized through numerous indicators in school (anti-social behavior, violence between children, etc.). Goal of this paper is to point out how much society disfunctionality influences on school disfunctionality, and how much school can be one of the reasons for deviant behavior of children. Also, we will present relationship of pupils and juvenile delinquents towards school, to point out acceptance of school as institution.
