FCCPTA Education Survey

 

In the Fall of 2018 the FCCPTA put out a survey to Fairfax County parents, teachers and caregivers. Over 6,300 responses were collected in the English and Spanish versions of the survey, representing parents, guardians and teachers and community members from every school and zip code. Based on the responses, the following areas present opportunities to strengthen our schools:

  • A reduction in class sizes to 18-23 students for classes in elementary schools and 20-25 students for classes in middle schools and high schools;
  • Increased hiring of experienced teachers and school counselors;
  • Increased teacher pay and diversity;
  • Increased safety and security;
  • The elimination of bullying and harassment;
  • Better school food; and 
  • The elimination of trailers to educate students.

The full survey can be found HERE. Marshall Road specific results will be released soon.
