Education Week (9/28, Kim) summarizes the results of a survey about Americans’ attitudes about teachers comparing the answers of public school parents to the general public. The majority of people support teachers being paid more: 66% of public school parents and 58% of the general public. The survey also found that 54% of public school parents and 59% of all Americans are opposed to public school teachers having tenure. Joan Richardson, the editor-in-chief of the education journal Phi Delta Kappan, said the survey results show that Americans have “tough love” for teachers, supporting higher pay but not supporting tenure.
