Trust is a crucial element of education that can be understood as an important precondition of the grow. Furthermore, contextual conditions are important for the development of trust. In spite of this, the role of trust in education system has been scarcely investigated. Research on trust in education is based on varying notions of the term and focuses on different facets and levels of analysis. This includes, first, a distinction between particularised and generalised trust and, secondly, between interpersonal, interorganisational and institutional trust (Faggioli 2018; Lancini, 2020, Muraglia, 2009). This paper introduces a reflection on issues relating to the feeling of trust established in educational contexts, offering possible interconnections with affective, emotional, and interpersonal relationship aspects.
