As individuals/groups strive to achieve successful integration in the globalizing world, personal/societal values and ideals seem to be seriously destabilized, resulting in different magnitudes of conflict, the lack of cooperation, insecurity, etc. Reactions and observations uphold that successful integration, particularly in a multicultural environ-ment, includes the identification and development of personal/societal values, ideals, and interests. Consequently, relying mainly on Emile Durkheim’s perspective on educa-tion and social integration as well as Lev Vygotsky’s social development theory, the author upholds that education is capable of identifying, selecting and developing syner-gy between personal and societal values and ideals for successful integration.
