In this research, we are interested in examining the social responsibility of education through a explorative study on a sample of teachers and students. Our results revealed that there are a lack of awareness of this phenomenon and more worthy, it’s shown that teachers have to stimulate and inspire their students to be involved in social actions and demonstrate for them how to be good, conscious, and responsible. Teachers should promote some values that conduct the behavior of students. Our ambition is to develop and establish an advanced social responsibility among the education team who will be responsible to transmit it to students and to community in whole. We hope introduce the idea that the "citizenship" could be an explanatory framework of successful learning. Two arguments can justify our idea. First, the social orientation is yet established through our religions and reinforced by our parents. culture and others some endogenous factors may encourage this social trend. Second, the citizenship is in its self the output of learning strategies. This indicates that active learning is inherent to social responsibility of active citizens teachers and thereby citizens students.
