Published: 4 Sep 2014
Abstract: Human relations at school create favourable micro-climate for learning, encourage positive behaviour, motivation, and help to create appropriate conditions for mature personality development. Acknowledging that good relations have a positive effect on personality development, the views of pupils, their parents and external evaluators of school quality assurance agencies was analysed, the current situation of relations at school was observed, trends important to all members of the school community were highlighted and education problems were discussed. The external evaluations show that very good learning outcomes, academic achievements and knowledge of pupils are considered to be very important, while the teaching of moral values and humane relationships are considered less important. Practical and interpersonal relations prevail in schools, whereas personality improvement, ability to reflect and empathise with others, unconditionally rely on the phenomenon of conscience is only an aspiration.
