The purpose of the paper is to investigate the social information disclosure considering its structure and content in the Lithuanian educational institutions.

One of the most important roles of the public education sector is the guarantee of society’s development, which also means the guarantee of economic development. This article examines the aspects of social disclosure in the public education sector on the basis of social responsibility’s areas of assessment. A case study has been used for the particular educational institutions – the schools.
