This study identifies children’s hopes and fears for the future and the role of education in the Ukraine.. The focus is on the personal aspirations of these children, who identified education, career, self-actualization, personal relationships, including marriage and courtship, material possessions and physical well-being as important. Gender differences and the implications for education in post-communist societies are discussed. This research contributes to policy discussions on educational reform in the region.
