In this article we expect to give a generic view of Education at the dawn of 21st Century. We must know the social task of Education and all its dimensions. Effort is a fundamental pillar to achieve all our objectives from the educational system. At the same time, we must also underline how postmodern axiology (whims, lack of efforts) is one of the biggest enemies of people’s well – being. These vain values equally generate failure and unease in schools and other fields of daily life, creating continuous dissatisfaction.
A recovery of efforts’ culture is needed. The most obvious aspects of Education must always be forceful, demanding stubborn perseverance with both gentle and dynamic warnings. We must go for affirmation and strength. Nothing of this is fashionable right now, and maybe, there won’t ever be. We know that these aspects may cause new or alternative ideologies and become themselves doctrinaire and dominant, but this is not what we must refer to like we were Spartan soldiers, but the demanded necessity of an authentically based on morality education, a pedagogy that means learning and training, self-control and courage, both humanized and humanizer heroism. In short, an Education with spirit for personal conquest, ideals and the benefit of humanity.
