For this report, Public Agenda has reviewed and analyzed opinion research on teachers and teaching stretching back over the last decade. During this time, Public Agenda itself has conducted well over 20 major national opinion studies on public education, including over half a dozen examining teachers' views on their profession.
Public Agenda's surveys cover topics ranging from standards and testing to parental involvement to vouchers and charter schools. Our most recent report, Stand by Me, looks specifically at teachers' opinions about their own profession, including controversial subjects such as tenure, pay-for-performance, teacher education and certification and the role unions play in public education.
