Engagement survey questions for teachers is a questionnaire to understand the factors that influence the productivity of teachers, and allow you important insight into the the areas with risk and the areas where everything is good. Survey data collected using this sample questionnaire will enable schools and colleges to take decision that will help reduce teacher attrition, improve retention and satisfaction.
Attrition rate of the education staff is one of the highest in the world. It is becoming a major concern since the deficit of trained educational staff keeps increasing every years. According to Unesco institute of statistics (UIS) if the current trend continues, 33 countries in the world will not have enough teachers to provide quality education to all children by 2030. According to UIS, 25.8 million school teachers need to be recruited to provide every child with a primary education, which includes 3.2 million new positions and the replacement of 22.6 million teachers who are expected to leave the profession.
The United States is a very good example where attrition is a bigger problem than recruitment. It is seen that about 150,000 new teachers are trained every year, yet within the first 5 years half of them quit. Annually half a million teachers leave or move to another profession cost the United States around US$2.2 billion. It has been observed that around 8 percent of the teaching workforce is leaving every year. Currently, educational staff attrition is ranked in between 5 and 10 compared to other industries globally.
