The Students of the Future Shane J. Lopez, Ph.D. Gallup Senior Scientist in Residence Research Director at The Clifton Strengths School Presented at the KU Communicators Luncheon on May 2, 2011.
Highlights from the Gallup Student Poll American students have great vision and excitement for the future. Unfortunately, where there is a will there is not always a way. Some American students struggle to stay engaged at school. American students have high wellbeing but that pursuit of wellbeing is not necessarily supported by school.
The Students of the Future The students of the future have half the hope they need to succeed, but we can give them more. These students are more engaged than many of their teachers, and will be so until their teachers become more engaged. Most of these students are thriving, experiencing high levels of wellbeing. We need to make sure they stay that way.
