      Most U.S. teachers agree that their principals are committed to professional learning, according to a nationwide survey—but they think PD-related decisions are largely out of their hands, and they do most of their learning outside school hours.
      More than half of teachers report having "some say" in professional learning decisions. Almost 20% indicate they have no input.
      75% of teachers identify principals and district leaders as the primary decision makers regarding professional learning.
      Just 25% of teachers say most of their professional learning occurs during school hours.
