Discover the importance of classroom relationships

For years, educators have recognized that teacher-student relationships matter. Research has increasingly shown that strong relationships between students and teachers can unlock a wide set of positive outcomes.

In a recent study from Harvard University, Dr. Hunter Gehlbach and colleagues found that when students and teachers discover what they have in common, they are more likely to foster a positive relationship—which can improve student performance and reduce achievement gaps.
