Grand Island teachers are unhappy with job, survey shows

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — An overwhelming majority of Grand Island Public Schools teachers have thought about leaving in the last year, according to a survey.

The assessment was conducted by Chaperone, a political action committee, which says 211 teachers completed the survey anonymously within 72 hours.

More than 75% of teachers in the survey feel the superintendent has been dishonest when publicly discussing the staff shortage.

And more than half are fearful of retribution for speaking up about challenges the district is facing.

Eighty-three percent said they have considered quitting in the last year, and 86% say they would not recommend working in the school district.

Fifty-six percent of respondents have taught at GIPS for at least 10 years.
