THE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP, A STUDY OF COMMUNITY EXPECTATIONS.
BUCK, ROY C.; KUVLESKY, WILLIAM P.
THE FOCUS OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AND IN COMMUNITY LIFE. THE OBJECTIVES WERE TO IDENTIFY THE TEACHER'S ROLE AS HE SEES IT AND AS IT IS SEEN BY OTHER KINDS OF PEOPLE HAVING A SPECIAL INTEREST IN PUBLIC EDUCATION, AND TO DISCOVER AND ANALYZE THE CONFLICTS AND THE AGREEMENTS AMONG PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS WITH RESPECT TO THE ROLE TO BE PERFORMED BY THE TEACHER BOTH IN AND OUT OF SCHOOL. INFORMATION WAS GATHERED FROM APPROXIMATELY 3,000 PERSONS - TEACHERS, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS, STUDENTS, OTHER ADULT COMMUNITY RESIDENTS AND TEACHER TRAINERS - FROM PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL-COMMUNITIES. THESE PEOPLE WERE ASKED TO GIVE THEIR OPINIONS AND BELIEFS CONCERNING THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER IN THE CLASSROOM AND IN RELATION WITH STUDENTS OTHER THAN IN THE CLASSROOM. DUE TO THE VAST COMPLEXITY OF THE ROLE OF A TEACHER, THIS STUDY REPORTED ONLY ON THE CONSENSUS AMONG RELATED GROUPS IN DEFINING THE TEACHER'S ROLE IN RELATION TO STUDENTS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT NONE OF THE GROUPS AGREED ON THE DEFINITION FOR THE TEACHER'S ROLE FOR BOTH THE EXTRA-CLASS OR IN-CLASS SECTORS. (AH)
