Teachers voted top of the class in the Ethics Index published by the Governance Institute of Australia on Wednesday 20 July.

More than 1000 people participated in the survey. The survey found that on the whole Australians think our society is 'somewhat

finance, politicians, the 'corporate sector', the media and real estse agents scored poorly.
