"The Metropolitan Life Survey of the American Teacher, 2000: Are We Preparing Students for the 21st Century?" examines teachers', students', and parents' views on where students are headed and how prepared they will be to reach their future goals. This report is part of an annual series of national surveys conducted since 1984 for MetLife by Harris Interactive (formerly Louis Harris & Associates) to share the voices of those closest to the classroom with policy makers and the public at large on important issues in education. Topics in this survey include the quality of secondary school education, parental involvement, issues of responsibility, educational plans and career plans, social interactions and support, and confidence in the future. Two appendices present: (1) Methodology; and (2) The Questionnaires. (Contains 100 exhibits.)
