As schools reopened last fall, many education leaders and stakeholders predicted that most online learning would fall away, and teachers and students would begin to recover from an unprecedented event. But new data from the Institute’s ongoing, nationally-representative surveys of hundreds of teachers and administrators have uncovered fascinating insights into what’s actually happening in classrooms across the country today, how it compares to COVID-era schooling, and how teachers are currently faring.
In our new series of factsheets, you’ll find intriguing data that could have far-reaching implications for school communities as they regroup for the 2022-23 school year. These insights range from teachers’ confidence in their school’s ability to help students recover academically to the major discrepancy in what instructional materials teachers use versus what administrators think they use. Many insights use comparative data uncovered in the Fall of 2020 when the pandemic first started.
