Summary / Abstract:

ENResearchers believe that social justice can be presented as a normative concept that characterizes the social situation as fair, consistent with human nature and rights. Though social justice is universal, but due to the inability to realize their rights and to meet the needs it is often linked by the people to the lack of social justice, and this is also true of education. Despite the fact that the national social models should ensure the social well-being, and, at the same time, social justice in education, however, the issue noted implicates the diversity of opinions and the lack of social justice assessment methodologies in education. That makes the basis for the relevance of the subject, and the main underlying question to the problem raised is how to evaluate social justice in education in Lithuania, in the context of welfare state conception? The aim of the article is to discuss the assessment methodologies of social justice in Lithuanian education in the context of welfare state conception. The objectives of the article are to discuss social justice in education in welfare states in theoretical terms and to give the analysis assessment methodologies of social justice in education (the case of Lithuania).The key findings of the research have been the following: the correct system of education can be achieved only in case of justice in various areas of society, and, thus, the assessment of social justice in education depends on contextual indicators (employability, poverty level, equal opportunities, and etc.). The theoretical analysis of the problem revealed its topicality, and the content analysis of assessment methodologies of social justice in education disclosed the functioning and limitations of these instruments. Thus, it can be said that for the future analysis of social justice in the field of education it would be appropriate to carry out a systematic monitoring of social justice in education by updating the key data and complementing it with the missing indicators, as well as the research findings of the public opinion on these issues as a component of social justice assessment.
