2- 2016 Gallop survey found that only 1/2 of adolescents report feeling engaged in school. That drops to only 1/3 of the students feeling engaged by 11th grade.
3- 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’.
PEP – Greater Well-Being Optimizes Learning
Positive Education blends well-being and character with academics. It is built upon the research based science of Positive Psychology (the ‘Science of Happiness’.) PEP– Positive Education Project trains teachers and students with the skills of optimism, engagement and resilience so they can THRIVE at school and in life.
PEP trains teachers with the skills of how to use individual character strengths to draw out the best in themselves and their students which will increase the love of teaching and learning. When these character strengths are applied to academics, individuals feel a personal investment in their education and teaching.
