New Study Finds Which Countries Respect Teachers Most

They’ve asked more than 330,000 questions in 21 different countries in an attempt to figure out just about everything teachers want to know. The first big question they’ve answered is about which countries respect teachers the most. You might be surprised that a country like Finland, known to have a high-quality education system, is not at the top of the heap. In fact, they’re nowhere near the top.
