    The thesis gives an insight in primary school technology education on three different types of institution: a Public, Waldorf and Montessori. Basic features of schooling on the above mentioned institutions are presented, as well as subject's legal position. In the thesis we explore several contents of technology subject with the basic purpose of giving critical viewpoint on the competitive profile of thechnical and technological competences achieved by the student. Goal of the research was to define the field we are dealing with, describe the chosen systems based on criteria, analise pros and cons of each and to propose amendments. The data was collected form literature and by interviewing two theachers from two private institutions. The data collected was analised and put into comparison. The conclusion we came to is that the advantage of private schools is on the account of emphasising the individuality of the student, thereby adjusting the classes, evaluations, etc. Public school, on the other hand, has it's advantage on the account of greater professional education of the teacher, therefore they are able to conduct much broader understanding of the techinc and technology subjects which results also in greater, more enthusiastic and more succsessful participation of the students in competitions. Students who finished any of the above mentioned program are on the same conditions in terms of further education. In order to gain even greater insight into the researched subject we should do an overview of comparing the actual products that are being made in different schools as well as the methods and strategies used, test the competency of the students who finished the program, do an in-depth research of intersubject integration and check how all that we studied looks in practice.
