Students' happiness at school goes a long way in learning
from News-Leader (commentary)
Got out an old study of school climate that my good and faithful research team conducted a fistful of years back. Why is a good learning environment so important? When students feel safe, enjoy being where they are and are happy, they tend to return more often, they tend to behave and they tend to learn. The overall climate of a school begins in the classroom. My research team discovered that classrooms could be new, old, high tech, low tech, large, small, near the principal's office or far away. It didn't matter.
