Description The chapter examines the current trends (directions and topics) of educational policy in Czechia and Europe. It explains its original concepts in a wider context and provides a critical reflection. It focuses in particular on the amendment of school curricula, one of the key elements in the current Czech educational policy strategy. As part of the revised curricula, we observe several trends, which may hamper the improvement of school education. The distinctive features are the currently overcrowded curriculum and conflicting tendencies causing content emptiness. The author offers a possible solution in a so-called third way. This is presented within the research sociology of the curriculum developed in the second half of the twentieth century, which balances the absolutization of factualism on the one hand and the emphasis on skills with knowledge relativization on the other.
