Teacher Satisfaction Research

The nation faces a teacher shortage. Previous research shows dissatisfaction contributes to teacher turnover and discourages today’s students from pursuing teaching careers. Teacher satisfaction matters.

SRF surveyed teachers nationwide about their satisfaction on 14 workplace factors. This infographic and report examines the complex relationship between teacher satisfaction with compensation and other aspects of their professional experiences. The 2385 teachers who responded were least often satisfied with salary and benefits. But it was not just about pay. The data suggest teacher dissatisfaction with salary may be symptomatic of the toll exacted from teachers and students when education is underfunded. See our blog post about Teacher Satisfaction here.

Hispanics & STEM: Gen Z’s Interest Can Change the Future!

The demand for STEM professionals continues to grow, especially as forecasts show there will be 10.6 million STEM jobs by 2028. Attracting Gen Z Hispanics is imperative to the STEM workforce, because Hispanic adults are historically underrepresented and underutilized in the field.

The Hispanic Heritage Foundation and Student Research Foundation’s new report on Hispanics in STEM, a collaboration with the Research Consortium on STEM Career Pathways and Google, suggests that now is the time to embrace the next generation of Hispanic STEM leaders. Data show that Gen Z Hispanics are equally as interested in STEM subjects as historically over-represented groups, despite challenges. See our report and infographic for more on effective strategies for developing and furthering the STEM aspirations of today’s Hispanic students!
