student-teacher relationship, China, America, elementary schools, history, culture, society


Student-teacher relationships are an important part of schooling. They not only affect students' academic achievements but also affect students' behaviors and attitudes. The history, culture, and society are different in China and America. These differences sometimes lead to different relationships between teachers and students in China and America. This paper focuses on exploring the differences and similarities between the student-teacher relationship in China and America and analyzes some of the key factors that influence these differences. I also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the relationship between teachers and students in China and America, and it proposes that the two countries can learn from each other to establish a more close and healthy student-teacher relationship and promote the positive development of the relationship between teachers and students.
