A recent national survey by Hart Research Associates and Lake Research Partners shows that 78 percent of parents feel that the quality and performance of their children’s teachers is excellent or good.

The survey was conducted online Dec. 15-22, 2021, with 1,308 public school parents who are registered to vote. Among the other findings: 72 percent say their school provides excellent or good-quality education, while 83 percent say schools are keeping students and staff safe from COVID-19.

“Parents value educators’ heroic actions to help their kids through COVID and view them as partners to keep schools open safely and deliver the social, emotional and academic support kids need,” said AFT President Randi Weingarten in a statement.

“This polling shows the virus is our enemy, not each other. Parents are saying teachers are heroes for their efforts during this pandemic and they deeply value how their public schools have gone above and beyond to help their kids recover and thrive.”
