Why Writing

In 2020, 826 National published a report on the state of writing education in the United States, calling out the challenges facing the writing education field, the benefits of writing for students, and the opportunities available to elevate the field. Now, we’re following up with our second report, The Truth About Writing Education in America Part 2: Raising Teacher Voices, which shares findings from a survey of over 200 teachers nationwide. This report confirms many of the findings from our first paper and provides strong evidence that the challenges in writing education remain, but digs in deeper to the teacher experience of teaching writing, particularly during the ongoing pandemic.
