Disengaged Teachers: A Problem We Need to Solve

I frequently hear about high numbers of students who are not engaged in their learning, but I hear less about teachers who are not engaged in their work. However, a Gallop Poll found that 57% of teachers report that they are “not engaged” at work, with an additional 13% reporting that they are “actively disengaged.” ” This is alarming. How can we expect students to be engaged in their learning if their own teachers are not engaged?
