Limitations notwithstanding, the main purpose of this article is to raise major issues related to people’s perception of and attitude towards teaching as a profession in developed and developing countries. These issues include teaching and other professions, socio-economic status, class structures of society, gender, rural- urban factors among others. It is a fact that more research in this area is found in developed than developing countries. By comparing developed and developing countries it is hoped that educationists in developing countries will appreciate the deficiencies as a challenge and carry out research in their own countries especially African countries.
