This study seeks to identify the perceptions of primary school teachers towards students, focussing on their perceptions of children as possessing rights. The research was carried out with 64 primary school teachers. 33 pairs of characteristics and four questions were used to determine the perceptions of the teachers about students; the characteristics and the questions are based on a thorough literature review. The study reveals that the teachers in general hold negative perceptions on their students and their rights.
