Adolescents' Conceptions of Teachers' Authority and Their Relations to Rule Violations in School.
Smetana, Judith G.; Bitz, Bruce
Child Development, v67 n3 p1153-72 Jun 1996
Assessed conceptions of teachers' authority as it pertains to misconduct. Subjects were 10- through 17-year olds. Found that adolescents viewed moral, conventional, and prudential issues as legitimately subject to teachers' authority, and personal issues as under personal jurisdiction; they were equivocal about contextually conventional issues. Younger students, however, judged all acts as more legitimately subject to teachers' authority. (HTH)
