The authoress, relating to the content of her book 'Mit o szkole jako miejscu 'wszechstronnego rozwoju ucznia'. Eseje etnopedagogiczne' (Kraków 2004) (The Myth about the School as the Place of Comprehensive Pupil's Development. Ethnopedagogical Essays), tries to look critically from the present perspective at some aspects connected with the education reforms in Poland such as: chaos in teachers' schooling and training, bureaucracy in teachers' career and the fiction connected with the measurement of so called quality of the school work, handbooks market out of control, extorted private lessons market, controversions connected with the works on syllabuses. She proves that pupils live in school in the world of dydactic and educational fiction. The authoress points to the chaotic situation and incoherent actions performed by the successive ministry groups and different 'educational prominents' and in some matters which are going on at the 'edges' of the reform - she indicates an analogy with the situation in R. Kapuscinski's essay 'Dziura w Onitshy' (The Hole in Onitshy). That hole in the road becames the source of income for the people in the neigbourhood and the social meeting point.
