The aim of the research: to analyse the influencing factors of the implementation of values education, discover the opportunities of improvement in the context of sustainable development.
Education is rightly regarded as a humanitarian science which most directly affects people's quality of life and well-being. The main function of modern education: to discover each child's individuality, to create conditions for the development of individuality, to ensure criticism in the education process, independence, initiative, creativity in thinking and in actions. A personality is judged by what are their most important needs are and what their needs structure and their correlation with values. This study summarizes theoretical conclusions about what values are, how something becomes a value and what is determined as value, the hierarchies and variability of values in the aspects of space and the time. The authors analyse the choice of the values according to today's needs, the flexibility, focusing on which values will become dominant, which are those that affect human performance and personal development. The study reveals the interest of members of the public in the implementation of the values education, the parental responsibility for upbringing. An important role in the upbringing process is determined by schools, as in these institutions a process of purposefully organized continuous cooperation between the teacher and pupils produces personal attitudes, values, ideals, norms, objectives and principles. The goal for both the parents and teachers is to help students learn, understand and accept a certain value system, which significantly affects the development of their personality. Student, parent and teacher value dynamics reveal the urgent need for a modelling process that facilitates the formation and development of values in the context of sustainable development.
