Deterrence of social status includes the following categories: teacherchr('39')s imagery, inappropriate social imagery of a teacher, feeling of systematic discrimination, lack of professional identity, job gaps, lack of accountability and institutional support, feeling of institutional inefficiency, media inefficiency, Weak trade union organization, professional inefficiency, and unequal power relations.
