Teacher Experiences vs. Administrator Perspectives

There are some interesting little factoids about student motivation in a recent National School Boards Association report, "Where We Teach," which examines a number of issues related to school climate in urban schools.

The report, for instance, found that almost twice as many teachers as administrators surveyed (29 percent vs. 16 percent) said children at their schools are not motivated to learn, suggesting there might be a disconnnect (surprise, surprise) between teacher experiences and administrator perspectives.
