You thought teenagers didn't like their teachers, our survey said...

Do you think your teachers believe in you?

The stereotype of the sadistic teacher, hellbent on the systematic torture of their pupils , or the teacher who doesn't care - someone who has given up on the high ideals of imparting knowledge - doesn't appear to exist in the United Kingdom.

In a recent poll conducted exclusively by The Teens' Speech, over 70% of teenagers said that their teachers believed in them.

It seems that despite their own feelings of unhappiness and depression, teachers are continuing to do their very best for teenagers at school. I wonder whether teachers are aware of the high regard in which they are held - would it ease their stress and depression? I think it might.
