This diploma thesis is a comparative study of Czech and American curricular documents concerning the educational reform that is taking place both in the Czech Republic and the United States of America. By comparing the documents I have tried to find strengths and weaknesses of both reforms and educational systems in general and suggest some means of improvements in areas where I found it useful. I was comparing the documents on more different levels: In the first chapter I was concentrating on two acts as the bases of the educational reforms: No Child Left Behind in the USA and Národní program rozvoje vzdělávání v České republice [National program of educational development in the Czech Republic] in the Czech Republic. The second chapter is dealing with the national curricular frameworks, and is comparing the Czech national framework to Michigan Curriculum Framework. The third chapter is concerned with schools' own curricula, and with the recommended ways how to develop them in both countries. As this thesis is aimed at area social studies and at civic education particularly, the next chapter compares the content standards and benchmarks of both frameworks. In the practical part of this diploma thesis I described the project that I carried out at middle school Vinařská in Ústí nad Labem in the Czech...

Teacher's Role in the Present Society
Krotká, Michaela ; Havlínová, Ivana (advisor) ; Kubišová, Zuzana (referee)
The thesis The Part of the Teacher in the Present Society is trying to give account to the readers how the part of the teacher has changed in the last years and what all up has involved this change. The thesis is divided into seven parts. The first capture should introduce the reader philosophical and sociological context of the upbringing. In the following capture the reader is familiarized with the teacher's profession and with everything what it yields. In the next capture the parts that the present teacher can perform are outlined. It is not their detailed recitation, but the roundup of the expectancy that are placed on the present teacher. In the fourth capture there is a brief list of law documents where the teacher's profession is defined. The fifth capture describes the form and the principles of the educational revision and the following capture acquaints the readers with the changes of the teacher's profession after the educational revision. The seventh capture attends to the new form of the state maturita exam and the related difference for teachers. This thesis should not describe only the changes which the educational revision has brought, but above all it should contribute to understand the formidable and difficult part of the teachers in the present society.

Krbcová, Michaela ; Havlínová, Ivana (advisor) ; Jirásková, Věra (referee)
The first aim of this thesis is a comparison of two educational systems, the French one and the Czech one. I tried to compare these two systems and to show certain mutual and certain differing elements. I accomplished an analysis of both educational systems, both in general terms and concretely, and I tried to reveal their principle. The next aim of this thesis is to show the problems or, to be more precise, the imperfections occurring in the Czech system. I also tried to outline some solutions, particularly with the help of the French model. In concrete terms and the last aim is the system of entrance exams for universities in Czech Republic, which presents considerable imperfections, especially in the area of cooperation with the secondary education. I carried out a research for which I used model entrance tests for some universities and scientific literature concerning education in the area of the basics of social sciences at czech grammar schools. The results of my work, which have shown an inadequate preparedness of the grammar school graduates for the university entrance exams, should persuade the reader about the importance of the Czech educational system reform, which is in progress right now.

Education is a necessary conditional character of human existence and one of preconditions of a way how this existence will be brought to life by human. Education for democracy is opportunity for its participants, often genuine opportunity, to meet concrete issues of historical situation. It leads to understanding and free will to open humanity for core democratic principles as responsibility, liberty and freedom, tolerance and respect, personal commitment. These principles are issuing from values and systems of values that represent our relations to the world. Axiological dimension is together with cognitive skills necessary postulate of education for democracy. Certain voidance of meaning of concepts like democracy and education for democracy in our society are reasons for searching their senses and reflecting upon their contents. Democracy is viewed as political system, as value, way of life and as discussion. Education for democracy is then viewed...
