Our study is part of a research began in the latter half of 2014 aimed at rendering the concept of didactogenicity more visible in relation to the Romanian educational system, as well as at promoting awareness of the impact of teacher behaviour upon children. This paper is a continuation of the theoretical background presented in our previous article (Boghian, 2014). It is a questionnaire-based investigation aimed at finding answers to questions such as: Is didactogenicity present in the Romanian educational system? If yes, to what extent and who are those most responsible of this phenomenon? Is didactogenicity more present in the rural than in the urban educational environment? The research study, conducted in the second semester of the 2014-2015 academic year, involved applying a questionnaire with 22 items to a number of students from “Vasile Alecsandri” University of Bacău. The findings of our investigation reveal the fact that didactogenicity is present to a certain extent in the Romanian educational system.
