Kids these days- they don’t respect their elders. That’s according to a poll of more than 2,200 American adults, which found only around 30% believe students today respect their teachers. On top of that, only half think parents respect teachers.
On the other hand, about 65% think teachers respect parents, and 60% think teachers respect their students. But overall, the adults polled feel there was more respect between teachers and students when they were in school. The survey also asked about what makes a great educator.
Based on the results, the best teachers challenge kids to do their best, inspire them to want to learn and have a constructive teaching style. Other good qualities include knowledge about subject matter and sense of humor.
