Educators Share Their Back-to-School Hopes, Fears

As educators head back to school, what are they most excited about? What are their biggest fears? What are they planning to change this school year? We polled Education Week readers to find out.


  1. On Tuesday, via @EducationWeek, @EdWeekTeacher, and @EdWeekComm, we asked our Twitter followers what they are most looking forward to this upcoming school year. 
    Here, you'll find a sampling of their responses.
  2. After asking what educators are most looking forward to on Tuesday, we took the opposite approach on Wednesday. We asked followers, "What are your greatest concerns for the upcoming school year?"
