USA: Teachers' Needs Survey
With the assistance of EI affiliates, the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the American Psychological Association (APA) is gathering information about teachers' perceptions of professional development in several areas, including classroom management, instructional practices, classroom diversity, family and community outreach, and other teaching skills and knowledge informed by psychological science.
The APA is seeking a national representative sample of 1000 teachers from urban, suburban and rural schools by June 2006. If you are a teacher in the United States and would like to take part in the survey, please visit the following websites.
