A survey of 21 advanced countries shows student respect for teachers is the lowest in Korea.
The multinational study polled 1,000 adults in each of 21 OECD member countries, compiled by Prof. Peter Dolton of the University of Sussex and published by Varkey GEMS.
Only 11 percent of the Korean respondents said students respect their teachers.
Interestingly enough, the two countries where trust for teachers was even lower than Korea’s were Israel and Japan.
According to the survey, Koreans take a generally dim view of their education system. I guess to people living in Korea and hence privy to constant complaining about the schools, this comes as no surprise. The system does produce results, though.
