Summary At the heart of this book are the National Education Association's "Status of the American Public School Teacher" surveys, which are conducted every five years and offer unprecedented insights into the professional lives and experiences of teachers nationwide. This volume analyzes and summarizes the survey's findings, while also offering commentaries on the findings from leading figures in the worlds of education, business, politics, and research. This work provides a vantage point from which to understand this crucially important profession, its recent history, and its potential future contributions to public education in the United States
