Has respect on all sides declined in school?
There is a new Harris Poll out today finds that fewer adults believe teachers respect parents or students and that fewer parents and students respect teachers.
In a first-of-its-kind survey, Harris asked 2,250 adults last fall to compare their memory of when they went to school with today. Adults polled agreed with the statement “students respect teachers” dropped from 79% to 31%. On the flip side students respect for their teachers also dropped in nearly identical percentages.
It is being reported that parents who respect teachers has also plummeted from 91% to 49%.
There were no numbers given on what teachers thought.
What are your thoughts? Do you believe that there is less respect in schools today then when you attended. Leave me a comment.
