Previous research papers show that schoolchildren are dissatisfied with their personal life and education. In a time of change, of intensified technical and consumerism-based world many of the pupils do not see the point of school subjects’ matter in everyday learning and do not seem to perceive pleasure in their lives. This paper is based on a pilot research carried out within a single primary school (OŠ Ormož) in the fall of 2021. The paper includes the methods of source analytics, a qualitative questionnaire and interviews. It was established that many of the participants of the pilot research fill this void with either materialistic goods or short-term pleasures, which in turn leave an even bigger emptiness. Modern life and education are focused primarily on the development of the body and the intellect. Emptiness (emotions, values, morals and wisdom) in our youth could possibly be mended by a changed education model, which would in turn provide a more holistic connectivity individual with himself and society and give a deeper understanding of the meaning of life.
