Ep. 9 – Sept. 4, 2017 – Public Opinion on Teacher Quality

The 2017 Education Next poll asked the public, parents, and teachers what share of teachers at your local public school are excellent, good, satisfactory and unsatisfactory.

Overall, people are quite pleased with the quality of teachers in their local school, but the public sees 15 percent of teachers as unsatisfactory, and even teachers believe 11 percent are ineffective.

EdNext Editor-in-chief Marty West joins Paul E. Peterson on this episode of the Education Exchange to discuss these findings from the 2017 Education Next Poll and more.
