Tennessee Educator Survey
The Tennessee Educator Survey is an annual joint effort by the Tennessee Department of Education and TERA to gather information about schools across the state. Open to all teachers, administrators, and certified staff, the survey is a way for educators to provide feedback about what's working and where improvements can be made in areas like school climate, educator evaluation, state initiatives, and more.
2019 Survey Report
Over 45,000 educators responded to the 2019 survey. This report, written as a collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Education and TERA, highlights some of the major takeaways from our statewide results. It provides an overview of several items that have been asked over multiple years and then dives into the 2019 findings to suggest steps that leaders can take to create more supportive environments, provide better instructional supports, and attract and develop beginning teachers.
