In the Quest to Improve Schools, Have Teachers Been Stripped of Their Autonomy?

This brief by the Center for American Progress examines how much autonomy teachers have using recent data sets, including the Schools and Staffing Survey, state surveys, and other national polling data. Findings suggest that teachers are more autonomous and more satisfied than might be expected. The brief suggests areas for improvement that include increased support, improved salaries, and better working conditions for teachers.
