Preparing Students for College and Careers MetLife Survey Part 1: Clearing the Path

Abstract

"The MetLife Survey of the American Teacher: Preparing Students for College and Careers examines the priority that all students graduate from high school prepared for college and careers, what being college- and career-ready entails, and the implications of this goal for teaching. The results are based on a national survey of 1,000 public school teachers (grades 6-12), 2,002 public school students (grades 6- 12), 580 parents of public school students (grades 6-12), and 301 business executives from Fortune 1000 companies conducted in fall 2010. In addition, education thought leaders and teacher leaders participated in a related online strategy session.

Part 1 of the survey examines views among middle and high school teachers, students, parents and Fortune 1000 executives on the importance that students graduate from high school prepared for college and a career, on what being college- and career-ready entails and on what needs to be done for all students to achieve this goal. Teachers, parents and business executives from Fortune 1000 companies also identify priorities among some of the most common education reform proposals, including several that are on the agenda for the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 2011."
