Front Row Education’s recent survey of over 3,500 K–8 teachers found that most teachers have students at many different grade levels: 80% of teachers have students at least one grade level behind, 70% have students two grade levels behind, and over a third of teachers have students who are three grade levels behind.

Over 50% of teachers spend between three and five hours planning each week, and 21% spend more than four hours.

An earlier Front Row survey indicates teachers often turn to software to help level this playing field. This 2017 survey asked 2,500 teachers what factors they use when choosing software.
