Educator Confidence Report

Welcome to HMH's 7th Annual Educator Confidence Report. We asked teachers about issues that impact them daily, focusing especially on technology and students' emotional well-being. Discover how educators are thriving right now, along with where their confidence is lacking.

Experiences from the spring of 2021

For the past six years, the Educator Confidence Report (ECR) has given educators a forum to share their views on the state of education, the teaching profession, and the prevailing needs of students. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic underlies much of the report. After more than a year of moving between remote and in-person instruction, teachers say they are more confident than ever using technology.
