New Poll Shines Light on Teacher Satisfaction at Charters vs. Traditional Schools

  • Print

July 10, 2012 Earlier this year, CCSA polled nearly 500 charter and non-charter teachers to find out how teachers were feeling about their respective workplaces. What did CCSA discover? We discovered that teachers find satisfaction in different areas in both traditional public schools and charter schools. The poll also found that in some areas charter teachers are more satisfied then their counterparts in traditional public schools.

Teach Plus also recently looked at similar issues and published a white paper which is a great resource for charter leaders who are looking for ways to improve teacher retention. It features a compilation of recommendations made by current teachers from across the nation to help great schools retain great teachers.
