Listen to Us: Teacher Views and Voices

Author(s): Diane Stark Rentner, Nancy Kober and Matthew Frizzell
Published: May 5, 2016

In the winter of 2015, CEP surveyed a nationally representative sample of public school teachers to learn their views on the teaching profession, state standards and assessments, testing, and teacher evaluations.  The report, Listen to Us: Teacher Views and Voices, summarizes these survey findings, including responses indicating that public school teachers are concerned and frustrated with shifting policies, over emphasis on student testing, and their lack of voice in decision-making.

Also included below is a ready-to-use comprehensive Power Point presentation of key findings from CEP's Teacher Survey Report, Listen to Us: Teacher Views and Voices. You can listen to the webinar here.
