Sociological Dimensions of School Failure: The Views of Educators and Students of Educational Schools


Author(s): Panagiotis Giavrimis, Efstratios Papanis

The purpose of this study is to record the beliefs/views of educators of all levels, on the social dimensions of school failure. The facts of this research are part of a wider research concerning student’s social adequacy having used a questionnaire and the viability of the educational system. The sample used for this research was 377 educators of all levels (80.4% of the sample) from towns, cities and rural areas of Greece and of 74 university students (19.6% of the sample). The results show that both educators and students differentiate between sociological and psychological factors when it comes to teaching. However, we noticed that the views of current or future educators were stereotypical and that could cause problems during teaching. Finally, students and younger teachers attribute school failure more to lack of knowledge on their part and to parents excessive demands and less to the relationship between educator and the parents’ low socio-economic status.
