Abstract

The study examines first the attitudes of 380 pupils in the last two school years of secondary education towards lifelong learning and second the influence of gender and level of parent education on the formation of the attitudes. The most important finding is that the majority of adolescents recognize the importance of lifelong learning, which is attributed to personal fulfillment and professional implementation, and which can be achieved mainly through reading books, postgraduate studies, internet searching, educational trips and attending conferences. Girls and adolescents with highly educated parents seem to be even more aware of the importance of lifelong learning.
