Summary/Abstract: The problems of the world we live in - the crisis of the environment, globalization, poverty, unemployment, social failure, equality of chances, human rights, democracy and so on, have become problems of the educational sciences, which have integrated them in what is called the „new education”. „New educations”, such as environmental education, participation and democracy, equal opportunities, development – these are just a few more meaningful ones – is proof of the ongoing concern of society and educational systems to overcome the problems of the contemporary world, the curriculum being adapted on flexible socio-professional profiles, so as to provide the opportunity for an education appropriate to the needs and different personalities of the young generation, while maintaining the balance between the two categories of disciplines, general and specialized culture. The teacher is in a position to learn permanently, to reform his work strategies, educational methods and objectives, in order to be able to give the trained ones an education in line with the realities of the world today, to have a change-oriented attitude in order to form the capacity of young individuals to adapt to a constantly changing competitive environment. The educational and pedagogical importance of theatre within school is recognized and proved long ago in other countries and in recent years in our country as well. About 20 years have passed since the Actor's Art specialization was introduced in the pre-university education system in vocational high schools. The meeting with students and specialists at the National Acting Olympiad held in Bucharest between April 22-25, 2019, confirmed to me that the actors in the world of education are facing a major problem: restoration of the objectives, redesigning of programs, definition of the most appropriate „teaching and learning” methods in order to prepare students for the world of tomorrow – artists, scientists, or business leaders.
