We Know Exactly How Bored Students Are Thanks to Twitter

We Know Exactly How Bored Students Are Thanks to Twitter | Social Media | Scoop.it

"Boredom at school is an epidemic. When Gallup asked American teenagers to choose three words that best described their typical feelings in school from a list of 14 adjectives, 'bored' was chosen most often—by one out of every two students. ('Tired' came in second, chosen by 42% of teenagers surveyed.) And boredom is global. Across 32 countries, nearly half of 15-year-olds said they often felt bored at school on average, according to a 2000 OECD survey. (Ireland did worst of all, with 67% of teenagers reporting frequent boredom, compared to 61% in the U.S.) Boredom, it turns out, is toxic. It is related to depression, poor grades, substance abuse, hopelessness, and loneliness. In one survey of 467 recent high school dropouts, nearly half said boredom was a major factor in their decision to quit school. People who feel bored a lot may even be more likely to die young, according to a 2010 study." | by Amanda Ripley
