The Professional Educators of Tennessee (ProEd) announced Thursday it is conducting a ten-question, online survey for teachers from now through Friday, March 9 about the level of safety in schools.
“Tennessee Public Schools are entrusted with the responsibility of educating the citizens of tomorrow,” the statement announcing the survey said:
A safe and secure environment is a requirement for effective teaching and learning. Educator and student safety is a priority for Professional Educators of Tennessee. We believe school management and planning in regards for student and educators must be a constant process and priority for all policymakers. Tennessee citizens think for themselves. Educators think for themselves, with an authentic voice that advocates for students entrusted in their care. We invite Active and Retired Educators to take this brief survey and share your opinion on school safety in order that we can share with state leaders and the media. By conducting the survey, Professional Educators of Tennessee can assist and help educate legislators in understanding how teachers feel on the growing concern of school safety. Because we have the direct input of educators, Professional Educators of Tennessee advocacy efforts carry significant weight with legislators.
