With the new school year just weeks away for some districts we are getting a glimpse at how teachers across the state feel about going back to class.

Local non-profit advocacy group Expect More Arizona surveyed nearly 11,000 classroom teachers from across the state.

Some of the highlights from their results include:

  • 79 percent of teachers who responded plan to return to the classroom
  • 18 percent are uncertain if they will return
  • 52 percent say they are "concerned" or "very concerned" about their safety and health when they go back
  • 47 percent of teachers say they feel comfortable catching students up academically
