#1 Those who educate children well are to be more honored than the parents.
#2 Those who educate children well are more honored than the parents.

These two sentences are similar. But I wonder what the difference are between them?

The first sentence is from my textbook, while the second one is made by me. I should have included the source here. Thanks for reminding me.

Yes and yes. This usage is quite formal and not something you'll hear often in everyday speech.
