Let Us Teach: ATPE Members Offer Input for Teacher Vacancy Task Force

To share the voices of Texas educators with the Teacher Vacancy Task Force, the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE) surveyed its members to gather feedback from those in the field on why educators are leaving the profession. Since March 24, over 400 Texas teachers, counselors, administrators, student teachers, and other school personnel have responded to the survey, and we have chosen to keep the survey open to provide an opportunity for Texas educators to continue providing input.

  • Press release—ATPE Survey Captures Voices of More than 400 Educators from Across Texas.
  • Interactive report—ATPE asked its approximately 90,000 members this question and published their responses in this interactive report.
