The status of teachers
CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE
Governments that are serious about attracting the best people to work in their state education systems must look not only at the salaries they offer but also at the social standing of teachers. That is the conclusion of Peter Dolton, who has conducted the first global comparison of teachers' status in society. We will only attract the brightest graduates into teaching if it is seen as both a highly paid and high status profession, he says. At the heart of a country's social attitudes towards teachers is the question: would you encourage your own child to become a teacher?
