Summary/Abstract: School burnout is defined as a reaction to experiencing chronic stress resulting from educationalfailures of previously strongly engaged students. This leads to psychological discomfort,physical and psychological exhaustion, as well as withdrawal. The syndrome contains threecomponents: emotional exhaustion (the pupil experiences exhaustion with regard to schoolrelatedrequirements); cynicism (depersonalisation, characterised by a feeling of detachmentfrom and indifference to tasks imposed on pupils by the school) and a feeling of inadequacy(the pupil feels inadequate with regard to the fulfilment of school requirements). Exhaustiondue to school activities has negative impact not only on current functioning, but also on futureeducational and occupational plans. It causes many problem behaviours (such as truancy,violence, psychoactive substance abuse, delinquency), serious health problems (depression,heart disease, psychosomatic illness). The study investigated the links between school burnoutand functioning as a school pupil and the quality of relationships among lower secondaryschool students.
