According to a new survey, nine out of 10 teachers love their jobs, but only one of three believes she or he is appreciated by society.
The Organization for Co-operation and Economic Development surveyed 100,000 teachers of kids aged 11 to 16 in 34 industrialized countries. OECD found that eight out of 10 teachers would enter the profession if they had it all to do over again, and that students performed better in academic international testing in countries in which teachers feel appreciated.
However, OECD’s massive report released today shows that only Alberta teachers participated from Canada. There was no immediate explanation available.
