Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented damage to the educational system worldwide. Besides the measurable economic impacts in the short-term and long-term, there is intangible destruction within educational institutions. In particular, teachers – the most critical intellectual resources of any schools – have to face various types of financial, physical, and mental struggles due to COVID-19. To capture the current context of more than one million Vietnamese teachers during COVID-19, we distributed an e-survey to more than 2,500 randomly selected teachers from two major teacher communities on Facebook from 6th to 11th April 2020. From over 373 responses, we excluded the observations which violated our cross-check questions and retained 294 observations for further analysis. This dataset includes: (i) Demographics of participants; (ii) Teachers’ perspectives regarding the operation of teaching activities during the pandemic; (iii) Teachers’ received support from their schools, government bodies, other stakeholders such as teacher unions, and parents’ associations; and (iv) teachers’ evaluation of school readiness toward digital transformation. Further, the dataset was supplemented with an additional question on the teachers’ primary source of professional development activities during the pandemic.
