2018 Tennessee Educator Survey

We thank the nearly 40,000 educators who participated in the 2018 survey. Our report for this year's results highlights three major takeaways.

  • Steps must be taken to ensure that teachers’ planning time is as well- protected as their instructional time.
  • The formal evaluation process has helped many teachers improve,but teachers would benefit from efforts to mitigate the burdensome nature of the experience.
  • Teachers would also benefit from improved access to strong instructional materials, along with the training and support necessary to properly implement curriculum in their classroom.
