This book presents a potential hierarchy between the three basic psychological needs central to Self-Determination Theory (SDT). Findings from the author’s research suggest that the motivation to exercise autonomy is an outcome that is cumulatively influenced by the perceived quality of the teacher-student relationship and students’ perceived competence within specific learning contexts and with a specific teacher. These findings are the basis for three hypotheses regarding students’ motivation to engage with learning activities. The first is that perceived competence is informed by and reciprocally informs the quality of the teacher-student relationship. The second is that students’ perceived competence and the quality of the teacher-student relationship have a combined impact upon students’ autonomous motivation. The final posit is that a teacher can be autonomy supportive both prior to and during activities where students have opportunities to exercise their autonomy. Such autonomy support includes the influence of teacher feedback upon students’ perceived competence and their subsequent motivation to autonomously engage with learning activities. This research begins to unravel such motivational interplay through an SDT-informed model, which is used as the basis for discussing the specific influence of teacher feedback and autonomy support upon students’ engagement with learning activities in formal learning settings. The findings and model are worthy of further testing and development, as part of the wider agenda of student engagement, wellbeing and positive psychology prevalent in educational research, education psychology, and the philosophy of social motivation.

Throw light upon the causes that contribute to the restlessness among students. Students are not to be blamed for their being restive and violent. They are the products of the situations in which they are being raised. They are what they are shaped to be. Since the ancient times an authoritarian tendency has characterised the attitudes of teachers among others in authority in educational institutions towards the students. Students have not had the necessary attention and affection. The most important of the causes stands out to be the absence of cordial teacher-student relationship plus the conducive educational and institutional environment. Recommendations It is interesting to note that a good teacher, even if he is not a good man, is more respected than a bad teacher who may be a good man. It is obvious, therefore, that professional excellency and commitment on the part of the teachers will go a long way to curb student unrest in our educational institutions. Dr. S.N. Ratha, Professor and Head, Post Graduate Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Sambalpur University, Orissa. ``The author has done his work critically and well. He has chosen a new parameter-Teacher-student Relationship'-in his study and is well taken. From authors like McCormack to Altbach, very few authors have explored this dimension of the problem except very tangentially. Mr. Ghose's is a full-length study on this dimension with all its ramifications. I congratulate the author for his painstaking and critical expose.........'' Bela Dutt Gupta, Professor of Sociology, Calcutta University, West Bengal. ``I recommend ................ for its originality and boldness. I think the results of this study be known to all teachers and educationists.'' Dr. N.C. Choudhary, Professor of Sociology and Social Anthroplogy, University of North Bengal. Review ``The findings are logically arrived at and cogently presented in a readable simple style. No doubt this book will be useful to all those who have interest in the areas of sociology, education, political sociology in general and to those who are interested in the problems affecting the youth in particular''.

How teachers form and maintain classroom and staffroom relationships is crucial to the success of their work. A teacher who is able to accurately interpret the underlying relationship processes can learn to proactively, rather than reactively, influence the dynamics of any class. These are skills that can be taught. This invaluable text explains how adult attachment theory offers new ways to examine professional teaching relationships, classroom management and collegial harmony: equally important information for school leaders, teacher mentors and proteges. Attachment Theory and the Teacher-Student Relationship addresses three significant gaps in the current literature on classroom management: the effects of teachers’ attachment style on the formation and maintenance of classroom and staffroom relationships the importance of attachment processes in scaffolding teachers’ and students emotional responses to daily educational tasks the degree of influence these factors have on teachers’ classroom behaviour, particularly management of student behaviour. Based on recent developments in adult attachment theory, this book highlights the key aspects of teacher-student relationships that teachers and teacher educators should know. As such, it will be of great interest to educational researchers, teacher educators, students and training teachers.

The relationship between teacher and student is an important element of school education and as such irreplaceable: If we want schools to be good places for those who teach and learn there, we must make sure that the educational relationships between teachers and students are good, too. In research about school education, surprisingly little attention is paid to the normative dimension of the relationship between teacher and student. This lacuna points to a desideratum in the philosophy of education: More should be said about the normative structure of the teacher-student relationship, its role in teaching and learning, and its final value for teacher and student. Answering these fundamental philosophical questions is the core of this book. It offers a normatively rich concept of a good teacher-student relationship that is based on the analysis of two major relationship goods: trust and care. Moreover, the book explains the instrumental value of a good educational relationship for the student’s achievement of epistemic aims of school education as well as the final value of such a relationship for teacher and student.

This mixed-methods study provided an examination of the perceptions of K-12 teachers (n = 39) and students (n = 276) in a small school district in Georgia concerning their student-teacher relationships. Findings indicated that teachers and students, both male and female, agreed about trust and alienation factors within the teacher-student relationships. There were significant differences in male and female students’ perceptions about the role of communication within the teacher-student relationship and their teachers’ viewpoints. Findings indicated that parents and lack of time are two of the main challenges to the teacher-student relationship. Future studies could focus on identifying any differences in elementary, middle school, and high school students’ perceptions about teacher-student relationships.
