    I think it has a lot to with the fact that America does not see teaching as an attractive career option.  Teachers are grossly underpaid, overworked, and worst of all, they are grossly disrespected in the U.S.  People almost look at teaching as the thing you do when you can't do anything else with your degree, and no other country regards their teachers that way. When I was going to school for liberal arts almost everyone I knew said...'don't worry, you can always teach if you don't pursue art,' as if it were a sad back-up plan.  Teachers are tired. They come to work tired, and sometimes bitter  and any kid in their right mind is probably not eager to follow in their footsteps.

    So far, teaching jobs have not credited in full to the individuals who teach. They have meager salaries as compared to other professionals
