GENERALLY, some degree of tension may be expected to exist between students and teachers in any school. One group is striving to gain the understanding of ideas and concepts to which the other group appears to hold the key. Students seek to attain standards set by teachers; teachers seek to impart knowledge sought by students. Such is the world of education and these tensions serve to keep the process alive and exciting.
However, when the tensions rise to higher levels and encompass strong expressions of dissatisfaction with a program, disillusionment with subjects, and dissonance in values between learner and teacher, then the process of education becomes a contest filled with frustration and lacking in a sense of achievement.
