Horace Mann Educators Corporation, a financial services company “focused on providing America’s educators and school employees with insurance and retirement solutions,” today released a survey of U.S. teachers and their reactions to working conditions during the pandemic, “The Hidden Impact on COVID-19 On Educators.” The short form of the results: teachers are working more, enjoying it less, facing financial challenges, and, in some cases, thinking about retiring rather than continuing under these conditions.
1,240 teachers (age 21-64) responded to the survey. Horace Mann did not provide additional information about how the respondents were contacted or selected, nor any geographic breakdown of the respondents. Local conditions vary considerably right now, so as with many such surveys, these results can be taken with a grain of salt. Still, they provide another set of data points worth considering. So what did Horace Mann find?
