Summary/Abstract: The paper presents transformations that have taken place in the Polish educational policy in the context of systemic changes within the past thirty years. The key phenomena that have been analysed include process of education socialisation, crisis in social participation and civic passiveness. The first part of the paper refers to opportunities and options that have become available in the Polish educational system as a result of systemic changes. The second part covers the crisis in social participation and civic passiveness as categories characteristic for the contemporary Polish society. The conclusion presents possible reasons for reluctance in terms of undertaking grassroots actions and involvement in education-related matters as well as actions proposed to stimulate activity and cooperation to contribute to development of democracy in the educational policy.
