Teachers Tell All

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded this comprehensive survey of public school teachers' views conducted by Scholastic. Other surveys have shown similar results: most importantly that the majority of teachers are desperate to have a professional environment to work in, with great leadership, collaboration, and good, clear standards....and that they care more about this than getting better salaries. Of course, no one would say no to a better salary, but so many teachers out there want to be successful--they want their students to be successful--that their first priority would be for the system to have higher standards and treat them as professionals.
