Ipsos has released a poll on who the public trusts the most, and it suggests that trust in teachers has declined by six percent since 2019.
It’s also important to keep in mind that the poll has a margin of error of between 3.5 and 5 percent, so it’s very possible that the decline is insignificant.
Of course, from our pandemic saint-like peak to – in some quarters – then becoming distance learning villain’s; next, being enforcers of mask mandates, not to mention indoctrinators in Critical Race Theory – it’s probably not unexpected that there would be some drop.
We’re still up there, though. For potential strategies to counteract any kind of drop, you can see my Engaging Parents In School blog and one of my older Ed Week columns, Ways To Build Trust Between Parents & Teachers — Part One.
