The article contains considerations on a survey conducted on high-school students, and is aimed at emphasizing the role of trust as a way in which individuals build up their autonomy. Three main topics are taken into account: how much trust students have in their school (reliability) and in their teachers (trusting relationship), the role of teachers as points of access to the school system, and acknowledgement as a form of a successful trustworthy relationship. The thesis sustained argues that trust is a necessary condition to build autonomy in an individual, since it is the means by which others are recognized as capable of deciding and taking action on our behalf. Trust is in fact an irreplaceable means for consenting to the freedom of others, since when the other person is considered trustworthy, we give into the way in which he or she will responsibly use their freedom with us.
