Explore how teachers, school conditions, and learning environments compared internationally in 2018!
The United States was one of 49 education systems that participated in the 2018 Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS). This study, sponsored by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), asked nationally representative samples of lower secondary teachers (grades 7–9 in the United States) and their principals questions about their backgrounds, their work environments, professional development, and their beliefs and attitudes about teaching. For the United States, TALIS provides key information on teachers and principals and how they and their working and learning environments compare internationally. Highlights of the U.S. results are provided below, while the two volumes of the OECD international reports are available on the OECD TALIS website.
