The paper focuses on Mikhail Kondratyev’s contributions to the exploration of pedagogical authority. Basing on the survey of 3056 students of 5—9 classes of Moscow schools the paper analyzes adolescents’ attitudes towards teacher as a referent adult: evaluations of his/her significance as a role model, descriptions of his/her social status with regard to the usefulness of the information received by the adolescent. It also reviews some features of interpersonal relationships within the teacher-student interaction: the adolescents’ reactions to criticisms, their evaluations of the significance of various reasons underlying conflicts with the teacher. The attitude of the students toward their teacher is analyzed through the lens of the educational process, including such parameters as the students’ physical and mental state during the lesson (authori- tarian/democratic style of the teacher’s behavior); the students’ trust in the teacher as the source of credible evaluations of their learning success; the impact of the teacher on the students’ interest in the school subject. The outcomes of the survey are reviewed in the context of the influence of certain demographic and social stratification factors. Special attention is drawn to the impact of academic achievements and the adolescent’s status in the group on his/her attitudes towards the teacher as the authoritative adult.

Keywords: school students, teacher as referent adult, teacher’s authority, reasons for conflicts between adolescents and teacher, student’s social status among peers, level of material well-being of adolescent’s family, academic achievement
