Title:
Participation, Happiness and Achievement: the Impact of Poverty on the School Experiences of 16-Year Olds
Authors:

Abstract:
Save the Children is particularly interested in exploring and testing the correlations between children’s participation at school and their happiness and self-esteem, and whether this in turn might contribute to improvements in educational achievement for children. In 2006, All 16-year olds registered on the Child Benefit Register who were born in February wereinvited to take part in the Young Life & Times survey. Of the 1,973 respondents eligible to take part, 772 (39%) completed a questionnaire. The evidence overall suggests strongly that participatory mechanisms in most schools need to be strengthened.
