Definition: An attitude is a predisposition to respond toward a particular person or group of persons; a particular object or a group of objects in a favourable or unfavourable manner.
Phenomena in the world can be perceived in two broad ways. People perceive objects, events, ideas and other people as either bad or good, pleasant or unpleasant, and so on. People will always approach what they perceive as pleasant and avoid what they perceive as unpleasant.
In other words, people form attitudes. Positive attitudes towards what they find pleasant and negative attitudes towards what they find unpleasant. How a person perceives something affects how the person thinks, feels and acts towards that thing. Therefore the way a child perceives a teacher or school will affect the way he acts towards them.
