Raising Teachers’ Status

Teachers’ economic and social status in American society is widely perceived to be in decline.  Although it is very difficult and highly subjective to measure any profession’s status, a new study attempts to gauge teachers’ status in a number of industrialized nations and formulate comparisons.

The lead author of the report argues that “Teaching in the U.S. is unfortunately no longer a high-status occupation.”

The New York Times article on this story also has a link to the original report.
