Teachers deserve respect- International study reports

In face of the constant criticism of the Teaching profession in New Zealand by such luminaries as the MSM, Magazine opinionistas  and politicians both failed and in power like Rodney Hide, John Banks and Hekia Parata the findings of international research on Teaching and teachers makes for informative reading. The report argues that the constant criticism of the teaching profession in New Zealand by those whose political agenda is questionable and based on ideologically unsound prejudice is unjustified.
What is of concern is the reported perception that Teachers are regarded as social workers by the New Zealand respondents rather than their abilities to teach and educate our children.
The report deserves more in depth reading by both opinionistas and those who currently are driving the education agenda and policies in New Zealand.
