However, they perceived these academic professionals as having fewer social responsibilities and as facing less psychological and physical stress than themselves. 2) High school teachers viewed university faculty members as possessing superior research capabilities both on broad-ranging and specialist knowledge. A grater proportion of well-educated people than high school teachers expected niversity academics to be more involved in teaching. 3) Overall, respondents were in agreement that niversity faculty members should prioritize research over teaching. However, a greater percentage of high school teachers than well-educated people held this opinion.
