    as to as concerning

    I know the `as to' has a meaning of `concerning' in some sentences.

    I would like to frame some sentences with this meaning. Please help me whether I have correctly used or not.

    This forum as to `learning/improving English' is a premier one.

    I am as to `teacher' should have more knowledge than students.

    "As to" = "with respect to, with reference to"

    I am as to `teacher' should have more knowledge than students. Wrong usage. You have to use "concern" in this sentence: I am concerned that a teacher should have more knowledge than the students.
    But you can also say:

    As to teachers, they should have more knowledge than students
