Abstract



This paper examined teacher-student relationship in selected secondary schools in Yewa North, Yewa South, Ifo, Abeokuta North, Sagamu, Remo North, Ijebu-Ode and Ijebu- East local governments. The local governments were selected based on the four geo-political zones into which Ogun state has been divided. Using a total of 80 secondary schools (private schools inclusive), 10 teachers were drawn per school totaling 800 respondents. A self-constructed questionnaire titled: Teacher-Student Relations (TSR) with a reliability coefficient (r= 0.79) was used to collect data. Five null hypotheses were generated and analysed via Z-test at 0.05 level of significance. While hypotheses 1, 2, 3 and 5 established significant differences and therefore rejected, only hypothesis 4 indicated a non-significant difference and hence accepted. It was recommended among others that teacherstudents relations must be cordial always if the teaching learning process is to yield fruitful results.
