Workplace Conditions. Brief
National Education Association Research Department
This brief describes workplace conditions in "learning centered" schools, where practices are consistent with recent research knowledge about learning and its contexts. Its purpose is to support fundamental, long-term change by offering a vision of best practice for educators to consider, discuss, and adapt to their circumstances. It summarizes supportive working conditions, fair teaching assignments, curricular support for high standards, assessments for accountability, professional development, the principal as broker, and success in low-income schools. The brief is based on an NEA Research working paper, "The Workplace Matters: Teacher Quality, Retention, and Effectiveness," by Susan Moore Johnson (2006) [see ED495822]. (Contains 1 table.)
