Teachers in China have the highest levels of public respect of those in 21 countries covered by an international survey, BBC News reported Thursday. The global index was compiled by University of Sussex professor Peter Dolton and based on surveys of 1,000 adults in each of the countries, the report said. It examined public attitudes to professional status, trust, pay and the desirability of teaching as a career. Most adults in China believed that students would respect their teachers — in contrast to most European countries where only a minority believed that students would show such respect, the report said.
