    No. Better would "Teachers feared losing control of their students".

    I think it depends what is meant. I agree with MNY that 'management control' is not a normal way to refer to the control of unruly behaviour in the classroom. But suppose the head teacher said 'From now on, teachers will have no say in class-sizes or selection criteria - they will just teach the students provided to them by OfBunk (an invented government agency dealing with truancy). It might make sense then to refer to 'management control' (as opposed to the sort of control that a teacher normally exercises in the classroom. (And this sort of high-handed intervention is likely to inspire fear.)
