A recent report by the Varkey Gems Foundation compares how teachers are perceived across different countries. The report looks at a number of different indicators, including how teachers are respected compared to other professions, how people perceive teachers pay and the degree to which teachers are trusted to deliver a good education to our children. The teacher status index did not match exactly with PISA rankings, and a number of surprising results emerged.

The report can be found in full here.

David Weston, Chief Executive of the Teacher Development Trust took part in a Guardian live chat on teacher status, which can be viewed here.
