Research has shown that relationships are a CRUCIAL vehicle for education. Stronger relationships among school community members contribute to:
- Improved student academic engagement
- Reduced student disruptive behavior
- Greater student academic achievement
- Higher student graduation rates
- Reduced teacher burnout
- Lower rates of teacher turnover
Every interaction strengthens or weakens a relationship. Establishing and maintaining supportive relationships with students requires teachers to have constant awareness and highly skilled relational behavior.
Most teachers receive no technical training in relational skills, despite the relational complexity of the classroom environment.
