The American Educator Panels (AEP) consists of the three nationally representative samples of educators who provide their feedback on important issues of educational policy and practice. The three panels are the American Teacher Panel, the American School Leader Panel, and the American School District Panel (ASDP).
Insights from the Panels
- 4 out of 5 U.S. secondary school principals experienced frequent job-related stress during the 2020–21 school year.
- 48% of elementary teachers reported using standards-aligned materials for mathematics instruction and 25% reported doing so for their English language arts instruction.
- 59% of U.S. district superintendents reported their students’ mental health was a major concern as of Fall 2021.
- Roughly 1 in 4 secondary school teachers indicated that they do not know where to find information to support English language learners or students who are experiencing poverty.
