Surveys- Does your school have regular teacher meetings?

Hello Readers,

When managers get together with their teachers for a regular meeting, it can simply be a time to go over new rules and regulations, or to remind staff about such things as their old dress code policies. But it can also be a time for teachers to voice their opinions about their teaching situations, for teachers to discuss issues with each other and for teachers to get some training in different areas. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen.

So, this month's survey question is...

... Does your school have regular teacher meetings?

Question: Does Your School Have Regular Teacher Meetings?

1) Yes, and I think they are useful

2) Yes, but I think they are a waste of time

3) No, and I wouldn't go anyway

4) No, but I wish they had them
