Get the Facts Out

Get the Facts Out: Changing the conversation around math teacher recruitment

Did you know?

  • teachers rate their lives better than all other occupation groups, trailing only physicians.
  • mid-career teacher salaries range between $60,000 and $100,000
  • most teaching jobs have better retirement benefits than private industry

Become a Local Champion and Get the Facts Out 

Get the Facts Out is an NSF-funded project designed to provide mathematics and other STEM faculty with the tools to explain and correct misperceptions about teaching with data on salary, benefits, and career satisfaction of STEM secondary school teachers.

Share the research-based, user-tested resources with students, colleagues, and administrators and become a local champion! The project also includes qualitative and quantitative research to evaluate optimal approaches to disseminating messaging about careers in secondary STEM teaching.
