Professional Treatment Survey

Are you getting the professional treatment you deserve? Too often, teachers and school employees feel disrespected in their jobs. They're treated like babysitters or expected to sit through numerous meetings where they are lectured on things they’ve already studied extensively, often by people who haven’t worked in a classroom in decades.

Sometimes educators feel respected by their principal and local administration, but disrespected by the school board or politicians in Baton Rouge. Sometimes the respect is missing at all levels. Tell us about your experience.

Are you getting the support you need in school? Are your staff meetings productive and useful? Are you bogged down with paper work that gets in the way of your classwork? Are you happy to go to work in the morning?

Local school leadership influences how you feel at work, but often state laws and policies impact your day-to-day work life as well. We want to hear from you! Your responses on this survey will inform our legislative agenda, policy positions, and political endorsements. Responses are anonymous.

This is survey #5 in LFT’s Six Weeks Six Surveys Campaign. Each week, we will send you a survey focused on a particular topic that is important to many of Louisiana’s teachers and school employees. This week, we are focused on your Professional Treatment. Each survey should take less than 10-minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous.

These surveys are part of our efforts to prepare for the 2023 Legislative Session. The session begins on Monday, April 10th and ends on Thursday, June 8th. During these nine weeks, legislators will make decisions and pass laws that impact you, your students and our communities. It is important that the experiences of teachers and school employees be centered in these discussions. Your responses on these surveys will ensure that the voices of educators are part of these discussions at the Capitol.
