Trust is the glue that binds relationships, which is also a fundamental element in teacher-student relationships. Anything that breaches their trust may bring severe consequences to everyone included.
To start with, knowledge is objective while learning is not always the case. Once the trust between the two parties is broken, students’ learning will get damaged seriously, especially with younger students. We’ve seen numerous examples in real life that students lose interest in a subject and perform poorly just because they don’t like or trust their teachers. On the other hand, teachers’ distrust may also hurt students’ feelings and jeopardize their learning. Secondly, if a teacher loses credibility among his students, it will not only cause ongoing troubles in his daily job, such as teaching and managing the class, but also influence his own work ethic. Even worse, this could lead to a vicious cycle. Last but not least, if the issue persists for a long time, the overall education will suffer and the society will pay the price.
The relationship between a teacher and a student can be either good or bad, helpful or harmfuh either way, the relationship can affect the student for the rest of his life.A good teacher-student relationship will make learning enjoyable and well mutually understandable. Whereas, a had relationship can discourage the student from learning and make teaching an unpleasant task.
In order to have a good teacher-student relationship, it is important that the teacher and the student respect each other. The teacher does not have to force the student to learn. In fact, many students will often work hard simply because they respect their teachers and want to please them. The teacher should motivate and encourage the student without forcing him.
