Why are female teachers addressed as "Miss" in England regardless of marital status? Are there any other countries which do this? Did you?

    In the US we call them by their name. Miss Smith, Mrs Smith or Ms Smith. 

    Never Miss, ma’am or Mrs.

    Some young elementary student will call their teacher, Teacher instead of their name. Usually until they remember their name and are comfortable with it

    Not when I went to school.  It went on marital status  except the drama teacher who stuck with her stage name, the name on her Equity card.

    It's not regardless of marital status. If they're married it's misses.

    Not here in the USA. We go by their marital status usually.
