Summary/Abstract: In relation to the school, be it a public or private institution, there is a general idea that suggests that all educational institutions that perform public tasks play an important role in education for democracy (Jakab and Varga 2007). Several literature describing the basics for the practitioners of the profession formulate ethical and aesthetic guidelines, recommendations for heads of institutions, school practices for teachers from this somewhat idealized basic position (Education International 2019, National Environmental Education Strategy 2019). The case study presents, on the one hand, an institution that, with its specific profile, refutes this one-dimensional school concept mentioned above, and on the other hand, provides insight into its internal logic, re-ideologized communication, a problem lasting several years, and student and parent action. The repression that will be explained below and the practitioners in this case can be identified in this case, they will not be abstracted, they will not become faceless in an opaque superstructure. On the contrary, people practice extreme forms of oppression with whom students are forced to come into contact and cooperate on a day-to-day basis during their school years.
