The Problem: Disengaged Students, Burned-Out Teachers
When over 22,000 high school students were asked how they currently feel in school, 75% of the responses were negative. The most common responses were ‘tired,’ ‘stressed,’ and ‘bored’. Positive Education will train teachers and students with the skills that enable them to feel hope, positivity and engagement so they can THRIVE at school and in life.
The Solution: - PEP - blending well-being and character with academics
Positive Education is an outgrowth of Positive Psychology (the ‘Science of Happiness’) and focuses on ‘what works well’ and doing more of it, rather than always trying to ‘fix what’s wrong’.
Only 1/2 of adolescents report feeling engaged in school. That drops to only 1/3 of the students feeling engaged by 11th grade. Positive Education's evidence based research can change that.
Pick up PEP
Positive Education blends the skills of well-being, character and academics. The Positive Education Project can be implemented as a schoolwide approach or simply on a classroom level.
