He elaborated educational system; his pedagogical achievements influenced much on the world culture and pedagogy in general. His methodology combined “education” (class and task system) and “upbringing” processes (creation of a collective with human interrelation system based on common cause). He considered punishment as non-ethical and non-pedagogical method.
In view that people have different natural skills and genotype of a born man is impossible to change, the main task of an educator is to correct orientation to learning and use own possibilities.
