  • Career planning…how long will teachers stay;

  • How has education changed…what has improved, what has worsened, what do parents understand of their children’s classroom experience today;

  • Student success factors…how do sports, sleep, and distractions impact on success, and how early can teachers predict drop outs;

  • Parent-teacher relations…how involved are parents in their local school, how involved are they in their children’s education, and how well do Faculties of Education prepare teachers for interfacing with parents;

  • Federal legislation on sex …where do teachers stand on age of consent; and
