You may remember the teacher survey we released with our infographic, “What Does it Take to be a Teacher?” a few months ago. The results are in!
Survey respondents represented 14 different countries, ranged from pre-K to continuing education instructors (89% from K-12), and focused on eight subject matter areas (including 37% language arts, 14% math, and 13% social studies/history). The average participant had 13 years of professional teaching experience.
A common theme was the difficulty of finding enough time in the day to tailor lessons and provide personalized feedback. Here are some more findings:
· 37% of teachers surveyed cited the growing diversity of student needs (different levels, strengths, weaknesses, and backgrounds) as the most challenging part of teaching.
· 21% percent believe smaller class sizes would have the most significant impact on student learning.
· 20% percent believe having more time to plan and review student work would have the most significant impact on student learning.
· More than 80% of teachers surveyed regularly work more than 10 hours per day, with 25% often clocking more than 12 hours.
