Teaching, learning, and leading through the pandemic have created prolonged states of stress for all members of our education system, and it is essential that we look to the voices of our on-the-ground educators to inform how we begin to heal. Join Teach Plus and FuelEd as we explore the data we collected from a nationwide survey of educators, and provide recommendations regarding the mental health issues facing educators and students.
Classroom teachers are the number one factor determining student success, so caring for the well-being of our educators should be our primary focus as we plan for a return to school in one way or another.
That is why Teach Plus and FuelEd partnered to survey educators nationwide about current educator and student mental health needs.
Spoiler alert: our survey found that teachers across the country believe their schools are not doing enough to support student and teacher mental health. . .but there is hope and there is time. The American Rescue Plan (ARP) and ESSER will provide significant funding for states, districts, and schools, so we've partnered to help you understand and build a case for what is needed to bolster mental health and emotional wellbeing in schools.
Together we are inviting district, school, community, nonprofit, and philanthropic leaders to participate in our Report Launch Event on August 11, from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CT, where you will learn about the mental health issues facing educators and students, and how you can be a part of the solution.
During this online event, we will share findings from our joint survey, hear directly from teacher leaders, and get recommendations for actions you can take in your district.
Following the event, you will be provided with a copy of our report and a survey tool that you may use to better understand your constituents’ mental health needs and inform your district’s planning.
Please register using the form below and share this invitation widely.
We hope to see you there!
