Keywords: Interpersonal, contractual, superficial and pedagogical relationship


Choosing proper relationship is an important matter to be considered particularly in the school setting. Education is intellectual and character and spiritual formation. All kinds of relationship must be tailored toward such aim. The relationship between teachers and students must help the students grow intellectually and spiritually or morally.
