The basic premise of democracy refers to development of the ability to deliberately and responsible participation in the political, economic, social and cultural life, based on knowledge and understanding, skills and competencies, personal qualities and preferences expressed by creative and challenging approaches to the issues and problems.In this paper we will focus on the discussion as one of the many strategies for the realization of the educational process, as an integral part of the democratic classroom. The discussion is an inseparable part of democracy because both have the same goal of fostering human development. They are based on the idea that only through cooperation with others we may be exposed to new perspectives indicating understanding and motivation in learning.The discussion strategy is one of the learning ways in which learning can explore specific issues already determined where the human experience and knowledge come to expression. It actually is an inspiring mean for detecting various opinions regarding a specific subject. All the conflicting perspectives of the participants, the unexpected multitude of opinions and views are a very good example of the democratic process in the classroom.
