Annotation:  Global social changes entail transformations in modern education. They give rise to dysfunctional manifestations in the entire educational system, including in basic General education. In order to develop a system of measures aimed at solving the problems of functioning of the social institution of education, comprehensive sociological research is needed. However, they have not been carried out to date. In this regard, the authors carried out a comprehensive analysis of modern social and educational processes, accompanied by dis-functional phenomena, on the example of the situation in the Republic of Belarus. The paper uses the method of questionnaire survey, computer processing of sociological information, compilation of comparative tables, comparative analysis. The results of the study showed that the functionality of the modern education system is determined by the demand for vocational education institutions and employers in graduates of the basic general education system. Dysfunctional manifestations can be overcome by resolving the contradiction between the needs of employers in specialists in specific areas of training, taking into account the educational level and the quality education of graduates who are ready to effectively solve specific professional problems-on the other. The conclusions made by the authors contribute to sociological science and can be used in further developments in the field of sociology of education.
