The paper outlines the issues of civic education within the context of contemporary European trends, educational initiatives and approaches to the civic education. From this perspective, school curricular documents, their changes carried out during the political transformation of the Slovak society as well as students' achievements in the IEA Civic Education Study are analyzed and evaluated. The research is focused on study how the school graduates of several generations reflect and evaluate the impact of school civic education and on identification the potential stimuli and sources of active civic participation. The results show the minimal influence of school on the current civic attitudes of respondents regardless of their age. From among other possible sources of investigated active citizenship, it was the effect of membership in social organizations and in informal social structures that was assessed as the most significant.
