What do teachers REALLY think?

Best-blogger-out-there Peter Greene at Curmudgucation analyzes the results of an opinion survey on a fairly representative sample of US teachers. A depressingly large fraction of them voted for Trump; have positive views of Betsy DeVos; think that students of color no longer face any obstacles to their advancement; and/or are opposed to immigration in general. Not by majorities on any of those questions, to be sure, but why are there ANY at all?

Definitely worth reading, and you can even go to the Ed Week page with the actual results…
