The Issue of Student Control: A Critical Review of the Literature.
Tjosvold, Dean
A critical review of educational and social psychological literature was undertaken in order to clarify the impact of schools' control orientation on student learning and on the teacher-student relationship. The propositions argued are (a) a strong control orientation is incompatible with helping students become responsible young adults, (b) the methods of increasing teacher power and status, and decidedly unequal teacher-student relationships adversely affect student learning and the teacher-student relationship, and (c) teacher and student collaborative use of their resources, increased student participation in decision making, and enhanced student status and power may facilitate student learning and development.
