More than nine out of 10 teachers say they seek out academic research from journal articles at least once a year, although they are ambivalent at best about the timeliness of that material, whether it’s decipherable, and their ability to apply it to their work, a new survey finds.

The results were published in a report, “Educator Voices on Education Research,” by the Jefferson Education Exchange, a nonprofit backed by the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education and Human Development and the Strada Education Network, an organization focused on education and employment.

The exchange has conducted research exploring ways to make research useful and relevant to K-12 education, and the barriers that keep schools from putting it to use.
