India ranks among the top 10 countries in the world when it comes to the evaluation of the country’s teachers. This was revealed in a report based on a global survey in 35 countries. This was confirmed in a survey titled Reading Between the Lines: What the World Really Thinks of Teachers, released last week by the UK-based Warke Foundation. It was found that when it comes to people’s opinions on the status of teachers in the country, India ranks sixth among them.
These countries are ahead of India
In the underlying analysis of teacher status, the order of countries is determined by participants’ automatic perception of the teacher, even when asked to quickly indicate whether the teacher is reliable. or unreliable, motivating Whether meritorious or not.

Sunny Warke, founder of the Warke Foundation and the Global Teacher Prize, said this report proves that respecting teachers is not just an important moral obligation – it is indispensable for the country’s educational performance. He said about 1.5 billion students have been affected by the closure of schools and universities since the corona virus outbreak. In such an unprecedented time, it is now more important than ever to do whatever is necessary to ensure that good teachers reach students.
The survey is based on the Global Teacher Status Index
The report, based on data collected from the Global Teacher Status Index (GTSI) 2018, confirms the relationship between teacher status and benefits for students. 35 countries were surveyed as part of the GTSI and 1,000 representatives were included in each country. This new report seeks to explain for the first time why the underlying teaching status differs from country to country.
Countries that spend more on education are also behind India
He found that the status of teachers is much better in rich countries, which allocate more public money to education. For example, public expenditure on education in India is 14%. In Italy, 24th in this survey, this percentage is 8.1. Ghana comes in second with 22.1% of public expenditure devoted to education.
