AbstraktThe preamble of National Core Curriculum for Basic Education in Poland presents main aims, for example guiding to the values, teaching skills of communication, active participating in culture. However, the analysis of the part devoted to the subject of Polish tongue and culture shows there is contradiction between declaration and strict requirements. The created by Curriculum pupil who ends the education at the Polish primary school mainly is an expert equipped in opulent knowledge on language and literature, not skilled and responsible user of communication and participant in culture. As an opposed model, we can present the Finnish National Curriculum where knowledge is subordinated to practical skill.
