My Voice National Student Report 2012:

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:27 AM

My Voice provides educators with a powerful tool for understanding both what motivates and inspires students to achieve, and how well students believe their school is meeting those objectives. My Voice is a powerful tool for initiating innovative, meaningful school reform.  


Global summary:  


Student-teacher relationships, which can be powerful contributors to student engagement
and academic success, are in need of improvement; moreover, perceptions of studentteacher relationships appear to weaken, rather than strengthen, through the middle school
and into the high school years.
– At all levels of secondary education, students need to be more engaged—and trends across
the grade levels suggest this problem gets worse, not better, the longer students are in
school; and
– While learning in school in general is perceived as important, it is not perceived as
particularly relevant to many students’ lives, and this perceived relevance generally declines
as students progress through school.


This document needs to be read and read well for those looking to change the culture of their building.
