Survey: Distance Learning Taking a Toll on Teachers

According to a new survey from CEA, AFT Connecticut, and WFSB Channel 3, distance learning is causing stress and overwhelm for teachers, whose workload has increased.

Watch WFSB’s report from last night, and tune in tonight and Wednesday at 11 p.m. for more special reports on how students and teachers are handling the transition to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Watch Channel 3 Coverage of Issues Facing Connecticut Public Schools

Channel 3 hosted a panel discussion with teachers from across the state Thursday evening. (2nd row) Sheena Graham, Bridgeport; David Simon, West Hartford; CEA Secretary Stephanie Wanzer, CES; Mike Wight, Newtown; (1st row) Leigh Neumon, Cromwell; Michael McCotter, Torrington; and Kristen Record, Stratford.

Last week WFSB Channel 3 took an in-depth look at many issues facing public schools, speaking with teachers to hear firsthand how these issues affect them and their students. Watch the segments, which aired during the 5:30 and 11:00 p.m. newscasts and focus on everything from classroom safety to students’ mental health to how much teachers spend out of pocket on classroom supplies.

To inform their reporting, Channel 3 partnered with CEA and AFT Connecticut to poll teachers around Connecticut on these issues. Read the survey results here.

CEA has teamed up with AFT Connecticut and WFSB TV 3 to highlight issues facing Connecticut teachers and public education today.

Take the Survey

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and share your views on everything from addressing the mental health needs of students to the scourge of vaping.

The survey is totally anonymous. You will not be asked to identify yourself or where you teach. The survey timeline is short. You only have until Monday morning to complete it. Channel 3 will use the anonymous results to report on issues facing public education next week.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on these important issues impacting our profession.

How Much Are You Spending on Your Classroom? Take the Survey

Teachers go above and beyond in so many ways—and one of those is the amount you spend each year, out of pocket, on classroom supplies. This back-to-school season, CEA is partnering with NBC Connecticut and AFT Connecticut to find out just how much Connecticut teachers are spending.

Please take the survey today—and share it with other teachers you know.

The survey is completely anonymous unless you choose to submit your name. Simply fill out how much you spend and detail what kind of supplies you purchase. Teachers report spending money on everything from pencils and paper to food to hygiene supplies for students.

Stay tuned by subscribing to BlogCEA, and we’ll share the results when the survey closes. CEA plans to collaborate on other projects and surveys with NBC Connecticut going forward to highlight the vital work going on in our public schools.

Voters Send Clear Message: Invest in Public Schools, Create New Revenue System

state-budget-fbFed up with continuous budget deficits, Connecticut voters want their state legislators to take action and create a budget that works for all of us—but not on the backs of our children and families.
