  • 1.  In-Service Teacher Survey Regarding Legislation that bans or limits discussions related to race and racism

    Posted 03-08-2022 09:59:00 AM

    Greetings,

    As a practicing educator, you are invited to serve as a participant for an Institutional Research Board (IRB)-approved research study that examines educators' perceptions on policies that ban the teaching of critical race theory (CRT), restrict teaching race-related topics, and limit conversations about race and racism.

    The survey explores the perceptions and experiences of in-service educators, in K-12 and higher education, on issues related to proposed and recently-passed critical race theory legislation. More specifically, the survey examines (a) participants' views on how CRT bills will (or will not) impact their teaching in relation to content and pedagogy, (b) participants' ideas on how CRT bills will (or will not) impact equity initiatives in their education settings, (c) participants' beliefs about how the policies will (or will not) impact inclusive representation of diverse stories and experiences in the curriculum, and (d) participants' insights about the impact of CRT policies on teaching about race or racism.

    Research studies include only people who choose to participate. As such, if you are interested in participating, we ask you to review and acknowledge informed consent. By clicking to begin the survey, as a participant, you acknowledge consent for your responses to be used in the data collection, analysis, and presentation of the research related to educators' perceptions on policies that ban the teaching of CRT. Participation in the survey is voluntary and no incentives will be provided. If you wish to participate, we ask that you complete the survey by April 1.

    Please know survey completion should take approximately 30 minutes, responses are anonymous, and IP addresses will not be recorded or tracked. If you find any questions to be bothersome, feel free to simply end the survey or not respond to that particular question.

    We appreciate your time and willingness to consider participating in our study. Please feel free to share this message with any educators who may be interested in participating.

     

    If you wish to proceed, the survey can be accessed through the following link: Research Survey.

    If you have additional questions please contact Gregory Samuels at gsamuels@montevallo.edu

     

    Sincerely,

    Gregory Samuels, Amy Samuels, and Brandon Haas
