MetLife's Survey of the American Teacher was Released Yesterday Showing a Big Drop in Job Satisfaction
The annual Survey of the American Teacher: Teachers, Parents and the Economy conducted by MetLife and the Harris Interactive that has tracked changing attitudes of teachers and parents for decades was released yesterday. The conclusion: over a decade of teacher bashing have started to take a toll leading to a dramatic drop in job satisfaction and concerns about teaching and learning conditions. But relationships between teachers and the communities they serve remain strong, and parent involvement is up. Education Week's article summarizing the survey results is HERE.
