Badass Teachers Association:

ATTENTION ALL BATS
What are the Working Conditions in your school or university?

THE BATs  QUALITY OF WORKLIFE TEAM NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE!!!

This survey is an anonymous survey created by BATs in partnership with the AFT. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EQWLBATS



Some History


In October 2014 NY BAT Jamy Brice Hyde brought it to the attention of AFT Pres. Randi Weingarten that teachers were suffering.  Randi and Jamy worked together to form the BAT/AFT partnership to address teacher workplace stress and working conditions.  Out of that partnership came the BATs/AFT Quality of Work Life Survey.  The Survey launched in May of 2015 exposed that America’s teachers were suffering. https://www.aft.org/sites/default/files/worklifesurveyresults2015.pdf

Taking the results of the May 2015 survey the BATs Quality of Work Life team and AFT worked to create an survey that would allow this work to be scientific and therefore become a powerful tool to expose teacher workplace conditions.  That survey is now live and ready for your input.

Speak up and Speak out.


10-15 minutes of your time to show the nation what our classrooms look like and how our working conditions impact student learning is the most important 10-15 minutes you can use to make a difference!  Take this survey and report your workplace conditions.  Make a difference!   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EQWLBATS

Our Future
BATs  believe “ A teacher's work environment is a student's learning environment.” It is the mission of the Quality of Work Life team to use the data gathered from this survey  to  propose National Healthy Workplace Legislation. We will be completing a comprehensive scientific study as well as identify areas in a teacher's work life that have the most negative and positive impacts.  We will use this to help to create contract language to positively impact teachers. We intend to impact policy making for public education across the country! THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR HISTORY!
