Nearly 90 percent of respondents to a recent EdWeek Research Center survey said teachers should be considered essential workers who receive early access to COVID-19 vaccines.

The nationally representative survey of 913 educators (prekindergarten through 12) was conducted this month after Pfizer and Moderna reported promising clinical trial results of their respective vaccines.

Finishing second to teachers were school nurses (85 percent), followed by school bus drivers (84 percent).

EdWeek’s Catherine Gewertz has the full survey results in her report.
