Summary: The school is above all an educational institution. The pedagogical classics do not recognize a school which does not educate. The basic aim is to provide its students with the necessary knowledge, skills and habits, to develop their physical and intelectual skills to the maximum of their capacities and to enrich them as human beings by stimulating, developing and tending their human qualities. The human characteristics are important elements of all human beings and therefore they must never be disregarded. Knowledge and skill without the human characteristics loose their ethical meaning and in most cases serve to the evil and not good. Therefore, a democratic society pays great attention to the successfull achievement of the educational function in the family, school and in the wider society. This function has been greatly neglected in our former socio-political system. In accordance with the aforementioned, the aim of this research is to improve the educational work and to re-establish the educational function of schools, family and all other educational elements. This will lead us to a new understanding of the phenomenon of education and educational function, conceiving and elaborating the methodics of education and will represent a real help to teachers, parents and other educators so that they can perform their educational function with greater effect.

Keywords: education, phenomenon of education, educational innovations, educational process, personality development, innovative school, educational function of the school, educational function of the family, educational and ethical values

Research goals: The basic a i m of this research is the study and analysis of causes and consequences of neglecting the educational activities and educational function and furthermore the discovery and presentation of ways, methods and procedures for the re-establishment of the educational activity and the educational function in schools, family and wider social life. The r e s u l t s (contribution) of this research are expected not only in the scientific comprehension of the educational phenomenon and the educational function, but also in the real elaboration of the methodics of educational activity and in particular theoretical and practical methodical help to teachers, parents and other educators in the performance of their specific educational tasks and which could enable them to perform their educational function with greater success. Therefore, each year a respective monographic work is expected to be published, planned for the practical work in educational activities with the aim to help the implementation of the new models and forms, new methods, means and procedures for a more successful educational stimulation, directing and acting.
