This article summarizes the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) 2018 TALIS - Teaching and Learning International Survey. Unlike PISA, which gives students achievement scores (and is used, says Grant Frost, to justify some dubious political decisions), TALIS "recognizes the inherent link between student success and the way teachers view their chosen profession" and asks "teachers and school leaders about their working conditions and learning environments." The report is long (220 pages) and detailed and presented to the reader as a user-hostile series of images.
