he article emphasizes that the school in the modern world focuses on the full preparation of youth for a successful life. This requires the application of a fundamentally new philosophy of education that would meet the needs of a market-oriented, competitive society. It is important to study Western models of organization of educational systems to use their experience in the successful transformation of the Ukrainian educational sector on the basis of decentralization. It is noted that the philosophy of education of a market-oriented society is aimed at innovative changes in the education system, optimization of the network of educational institutions, multi-channel financing of the educational sphere, raising the quality of the educational process and others. Examining the experience of Western countries, Ukraine, in our opinion, should build its own educational model that corresponds to modern realities and national traditions. Such a model can be based on the principles of decentralization, innovation, socio-economic incentives for scientific and pedagogical activities, flexibility, democracy in building relations between the subjects of the educational field. European experience shows that the educational sphere needs adequate funding to implement the tasks set above, which is a difficult for modern Ukraine. In market conditions, it should be understood that «cheap education» can not produce quality professionals. The Ukrainian education system is still in the process of transitioning from outdated authoritarian forms of education to new standards and methods. In general, the philosophy of education of a market-oriented society in its western version is aimed at constantly updating knowledge, improving the level of educational services, ensuring accessibility of citizens to educational institutions of different levels, creating conditions for lifelong learning, maintaining the practical orientation of education and others.
