Administrator Mistreatment of Teachers Survey

Dear Teacher,

I am conducting a study exploring teachers’ experiences with mistreatment and bullying by their administrators. Your answers will assist me in understanding teachers’ perceptions of and experiences with mistreatment, the severity of the mistreatment, and the effects it has on teachers’ personal and professional lives.

This survey is entirely voluntary. Please answer all questions as this will make the survey data most useful.  This survey should take about 30 minutes to complete.  Your answers will be anonymous.  Since this survey is voluntary, you may stop participation in the survey at any time.  Also, you will not directly benefit from this survey, but it is providing valuable information regarding your experiences with mistreatment by your administrators.

If you wish to participate in an interview about this topic, there is a space on the survey for you to type in your email address so I can contact you. Please do not use your school email address if you currently work at a site where you are being mistreated. If you provide your email address, your responses will be confidential and I will de-link your identifying information from your responses. Your email address will not be shared with anyone; only I will have access to it.

Your willingness to participate in this study is greatly appreciated.  By proceeding with this survey, it will be implied you consent to take part in the study.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at

I appreciate you taking time to complete this survey!

Thank you,
