At the end of the school day, before a holiday, as the school year wraps, during a subject they don’t enjoy, or sometimes for no specific reason at all, students can find it challenging to stay engaged. But it’s not just your classroom – you’re not alone, Teach. There are endless statistics about student engagement and disengagement. Gallup’s survey efforts of Grades 5-12 showed that almost half of students who responded to the survey are engaged with school (47%), approximately one-fourth aren’t engaged (29%), and the remainder are actively disengaged (24%). Numerous reports also state engagement only decreases as students progress through school.
