Study finds teachers upset due to pay, lack of respect from community

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Tucson Values Teachers released a survey on Wednesday to evaluate how teachers feel about the state of their profession in Arizona.

Over 6,500 state, charter, private and religious school teachers participated in the survey commissioned by Tucson Values Teachers, the Southern Arizona Leadership Council and the UA College of Education.

According to the data results, some teachers are satisfied because of the strong school leadership and good professional development. The teachers are also pleased that they are allowed to run their classrooms against metrics laid out by administrators.

The data also found that many teachers are unhappy about a lack of professional training and development. It was also reported that the teachers believe there is a lack of respect from the community.

According to the survey, the teachers believe the public thinks teaching is a calling and is not worthy of the same pay other college graduates earn. Arizona was ranked among the states with the lowest annual salaries, accounting for cost of living.
