The North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions (NC TWC) survey is an anonymous statewide survey of licensed school-based educators to assess teaching conditions at the school, district and state level. First administered in 2002 as part of the Governor's Teacher Working Conditions Initiative, it is conducted biennially.
The results of this survey are one component of the on-going process for collaborative school and district improvement plans. Results are also used as artifacts in the educator and administrator evaluation instruments in our state.
The New Teacher Center (NTC) works collaboratively with a variety of stakeholder groups representing teachers, superintendents, community and business to conduct the survey. NTC is a nonpartisan group with a mission to support the development of an effective, dedicated and inspired teaching force. NTC also has vast experience conducting similar surveys across the country. For more information about NTC’s work across the country with teaching conditions surveys, please click here.
