A book gathering estonian studies in education, revealing many results such as; students valued academic success, politeness, and honesty but not so much health and tolerance. Teenagers gave high ranks to knowledge, friends, and honesty and lower ranks to a high position in society and wealth. The students’ self-evaluations were in good correlation with PISA 2006 results.
